If You Got The Notion...

I've had this link to Acme Notions bookmarked for awhile- I actually have no idea why I never shared it before.
I like notions, notions make me giddy in a way I can't really explain. When I found this shop last year, I fell madly in love. At the time I was doing medieval reenacting and I needed a wooden thimble and wooden needle holder (it is a long story, just go with that I needed them) and I got both of them there for $2.50 with like $1 shipping. By the way if you are the uber crafty type, you can repaint and refinish the wooden tubes and thimbles to whatever you like- I did, its super easy.

BUT, the reason for why I mainly wanted to give you guys the link is because of all the vintage stuff they have, like a filagree yarn ball holder, vintage books, vintage patterns, vintage accessories for those patterns, vintage and old fashioned notions.

They even carry random stuff like ring sizers, pencil sharpeners, iron on transfers and patches, and black cat mini cards (I'm looking at you Obsidian Kitten).
