    Growing up in a new england mill town makes me kind of fond of these old spools and bobbins. I found these yesterday. and particularly like those great big ones. People used them as candle holders, of course, but this is a very bad idea. I nearly burned my house down when i was 18 using one of these as a candle holder.

      Thank you Racer and Vynil. I am also amazed at how widely eclectic my collection is as well. i feel as if i live in one of those 19th c cabinets of curiosities these days. Vynil - i didn't delete a msg from you? Not sure why it disappeared.
