Sew Vintage: Gifts to Sell at Fairs and Bazaars

This week's Sew Vintage is from the American Thread Company. It is Star Gift Book No. 129, entitled, "Gifts to Sell at Fairs and Bazaars." It originally sold for 10 cents in 1956.

Some of the crafts in this book absolutely crack me up! I cannot imagine seeing them at a craft fair these days, but I bet there are some folks still making them. :)

(Forgive me for not retaking these pictures where the glare from the flash isn't right in the middle of the images! Lazy!)


This picture was titled, "Like Mother, Like Daughter." hahah :) A mother and daughter octopus pair. Ummm... okay?.

Everyone's grandmother had at least one of these items.

The easy dust mop and the knitted potholder.

The Shoe Favor! :) GOTTA HAVE IT!!!

Cock-A-Doodle Doo Napkin Holder

Cock-A-Doodle-Doo Toaster Cover

Doggy Pillow. hahaha

Rose Bathroom Fixtures

And finally, the mesh luncheon set.

What do you think? Would I make a killing at a craft fair?!?!? :)
