Needle books were how needles were purchased in the 40's and 50's at the local drug store. Now, they offer a unique glimpse into the past as well as interesting, frame-able vintage art!

Sewing Susan: This book is in fairly good condition. There is some creasing, and 1 or 2 slight tears. The color is fantastic - still bright and vibrant. The art depicts 4 women at a table, presumably sewing. In picture 2 you can see most of the creasing. Picture 4 shows the inside of the Sewing Susan folder - some of the needles are still intact, as well as the needle threader (which is often lost). These are rust-proof needles, and can still be used today.

Colossal: This book is also in decent condition, with one subtle crease on each side. There is corner damage to one top corner, and the opposite bottom corner. Picture 3 shows the damage to the top corner. The bottom corner's damage is smaller and can be seen in the first photo. The art depicts hi-rise office buildings in greens, blues, and red. Picture 5 shows the inside of this folder. Many of the needles are still intact, as well as the threader. As above, these are rust-proof needles and still useful!

These would look great framed for a sewing room, or any room you would like a vintage feel. Both folders are 5 7/8" wide by 3 1/2" tall when closed.
