Very nice! MadMan would want to steal those off you!

I bet some little old lady has had those in her sewing box since the 20's when some salseman handed them to her at a world fair or some sort.

LOL husky

I actually saw one on ebay not long ago. I'm a bit torn. Yes, it'd be neat to have Cadillac... memorabilia? But I'd be tempted to use one when sewing (on the once- or twice-a-year occasion that I do) but I've got big burly man fingers, so that wouldn't work out. So then I'd have a tiny little thimble sitting on a shelf that nobody - not even me - would notice.

...How much you want for them/one of them? lol
