Vintage Rick Rack


So today I am in Goodwill browsing around, doing my usual scan the store for fun items to alter shopping trip! I try to get there every couple of weeks to see what treasures I may stumble upon.

Well, I found a bag of these packages of Rick Rack and thought, "Hmmm, I love using Rick Rack in my work so I think I will get these." So I brought them home and threw them on the kitchen counter.

Just a few minutes ago I finally opened the bag and looked at the package. I mean took a good look! Not like just looking at the rick rack like in the store but the label. It looked old. Well, I just did a search and found out that it is like from the 1930's.

So I've got myself some wonderful vintage rick rack. I'm not sure what I am going to do with it yet........I'm just excited to have something vintage and cool and old!

Cool find...the ribbon looks great for being so old. Someone took care of this.
