When I bought this old printer's tray from Ebay about 18 months ago, my husband was less than impressed. I explained it was for storage and display, and I think he was worried I might be about to start a thimble collection or something. I got the last laugh though because it turns out to be the perfect place to keep all my little ribbon remnants and a few reels of cotton that, until now, have been hidden away taking up space on the shelves in my studio. I may drill a couple of holes in it and nail it to the wall but I actually quite like it casually propped up in a nook at the bottom of the stairs. A neat little splash of colour and ready access to all my bits of haberdashery.
