I have approximately a dozen of these cherished little trading cards. They were a gift from DH several years ago.
Around the turn of the century (1900 not 2000), sewing machine companies used these trading cards as a marketing tool to advertise their products. Here’s a close-up of one of the cards:
Now who wouldn’t want to get their hands on as many of these little gems as possible? Okay, maybe not a baseball player, but seems to me all other members of the human race would desire these as much as I do. It is a sewingcentric world, isn’t it?
My conundrum is that I don’t have a manner in which to display them so I can enjoy them to their fullest. I’ve considered and evaluated a number of items, but as yet have come up empty. I would welcome any advice, suggestions, ideas, etc. from my terrific readers on how I might appropriately display my cards. And if your idea includes upcycling or repurposing something to do so, all the better. Thank you in advance for your comments.
