Notions Department: Trims

Trims, Trims, Trims!

I pick up vintage packs of trim at thrift stores anytime I can find them.


The labels are an added bonus.  Too cute!


I also like the ads on the labels.


Send 3 labels and 10 cents!
I heard a few years ago there was still a company that would send trim scraps to children to use for cheap.  I haven't looked at any new labels lately to confirm this.


This is the coolest!  Patterns and ideas for embellishing with trims on the inside of old Wright's labels.  I would like to make that Top-ette!


This post is part of a long series I am doing that showcases ads and products from old pharmacies and 5 and Dime stores.  All of the ads are scans from the publication Chain Store Age September 1955.  The products photographed are from my personal collection.  I am running this series on auto-post so I can work on some projects around my real house.  I will return at the end of this series (April or May) back to "normal".
