Vintage sewing basket

I found this while thrifting yesterday, intending to sell it in my vintage shop. But it just looks so good sitting on my work table, holding my sewing supplies, that I can’t bear to part with it.

It’s this crazy marigold and goldenrod color with a clear, vinyl tab. The bottom has a “Made in Japan” label – why do all the cool, crafting supplies always come from Japan – and it’s probably from sometime in the late Sixties or early Seventies.

It’s almost too pretty to fill up with my raggedy collection of sewing supplies. It’s certainly pretty enough to adorn my sewing table, though.
