“Mad Men”-Era Sewing Box

Filed under: Uncategorized — fehlhaber @ 10:02 am

I pulled out my mother’s sewing box today.  It’s like a time capsule back to the 1950s through 1970s — not much has been added or taken away since then.  Among all the items, I found a few gems (and some wonderful colors).

My dad worked in sales for York Refrigeration from 1961 (or so) to the early 70s.   I bet he was supposed to hand this to a secretary while making a sales visit.

Buttons!
