Sajou - articles de mercerie


This haberdashery or notions store, 
is filled with ribbons, buttons, needlework patterns and materials, 
threads, and all manner of things.

This is a drawer filled with colorful cards.  
I was remiss in not knowing for sure how they are used, 
but I guessed that they were for wrapping embroidery threads 
of several colors for a single project.  

What I really wonder is 
WHY did I not buy a few to bring home?

47, rue du Caire

A veritable treasure trove Genie.

Revrunner said...

Wait! I'm confused. How would you "wrap" embroidery needles in a card. (-|

Hello Genie,

How we love the idea of a 'notions' store. One's imagination is at once filled with thoughts of what gems such a store could sell. And, this drawer of colourful cards is certainly inviting. One could surely gaze upon them for hours.

I've just added this to my next time book. Can you imagine the wonderful creative things I could do after a visit here?

Next time for sure Genie :)

Very colourful, Genie. My mother had things like that when she did embroidery.

Alexa said...

And I want to go back to that street for more ribbon. Next time, Genie.

I don't know where to look first. Nice shot.

Genie, I love this colorful collection!

Very interesting, colourful collection ! I am sure some of them have a small hole in them to thread ribbon through , could use them to decorate gift wrapping.
