More haberdashery finds at the flea market in Paris. I am so enjoying hunting out vintage pill tins to fill with buttons for my Etsy shop. I bought one yesterday from an old lady at a vide grenier. We got talking and she was full of fascinating knowledge about the history and use of tins, and eventually said that she had a collection of several thousand! I am always fascinated by how people keep and display their large collections and when asked she told me that she kept them in her chambre de bonne, the room which would have been used by the maid. The idea of a room in Paris entirely filled with vintage tins quite made my day.
