Vintage sewing haul

I have moved! And I am using my little dining area as a sewing nook. As I fix that up I will surely post more. Until then…

One of my coworkers is retiring and clearing stuff out of their house for a cross country move. They knew that I sew, so they gave me a bunch of sewing things from their parents who have passed away.

I got one of these classic sewing boxes.

There was lots of nice sewing notions inside. Scissors in great condition. Tons of thread. A million buttons.

I do need some help identifying this tool, though. It’s the size of a lipstick, but has a wire brush inside.
