What's been in my post box?
Inspired by this book, i bought these from an Etsy seller. Entitled 'The Work Basket' these publications from 1948 and 1947 have on the cover: "Ideas for the Bazaar, the Home, Gifts and Sparetime. Money-makers - with many inexpensive, easily made Articles that find a ready sale.'
How delightful! Crochet does feature heavily, (a skill i have not yet acquired) but I just love the idea of these.
Plus the ads are great too.. like this one..
Straight from war time parachutes to home usage ... i can't think of a parallel for today, can you?
