Here's is a totally cute apple that's also a pin cushion. I love the plaid fabric and check this out, the 'stem' is a cinnamon stick!
The lady I bought this from said that she made several of them as gifts in the late 1970's and they were quite popular with her friends.
It's just under 3" high and wide, not including the leaf and stem. Sorry, the pins shown are for display only.
What a great gift for someone just learning to sew, the kid's teacher or perhaps that collector friend of yours.
I look for Cool Finds where ever I go and I never know what I’ll run across. I find sewing boxes and so much more and realize that, being vintage, they most likely have been used and will have some wear and tear.
Buttons may have come off of a dress or coat, or they might have never been used at all, like those on the original cards. Books may have been handled and gone through over and over.
Please look at the details in the photos above as they are a part of my description and are intended to help you determine age and condition. All items are sold as is. If you have any questions, please let me know as I would be more than happy to answer them.

Payment is delightedly accepted and preferred within a few days. I like to send my treasures to you as soon as possible, so the sooner you pay, the sooner you'll get your treasure.
I always do my best to get your new find on it's way to you the same day as your payment or the very next day. If you pay on a weekend, it will have to wait until Monday morning.
Hey Californians! Yep, gotta charge that sales tax if you're buying from me. Sorry ~
