Next to the old bank is one of several antique and collectible stores on Main Street. In the window is a collection of old sewing baskets.

Thanks everyone for 10 stars at 4:50 Eastern time!!!

Yes Lorna, I always want to see inside, too, to see if there might be any kind of treasure of the past. Thanks.

I'm glad your here, lyndee. I know what you mean. I would have driven on past Bonneville Dam every time, but now I can't wait to see more and visit myself sometime.

Thanks for letting me tag along. Before now, I would have never dream I would want to see Ames, Iowa!!!! LOL

This is a lovely photo, and the display would tempt me inside the shop! I would want to look inside these baskets to see if any have their previous owners bits and bobs still inside!

Thank you Laura, I've been working on being more open to what I see for photos.

Yes Robyn-they would make a great holder of old photos. Just right! Thanks.

Sure Cathy. And Beekay. Were just stopping next door now in an unusual shop and will see you there. Actually I want to go in too, but time is ticking. We'll see you there!

Its really neat to have that connection to the past cjolly, and three generations past--Excellent! Think of the stories it could tell. Thanks!!

cjolly

Beautiful baskets! I have the one at the back on the right. It was my great grandmothers.

My Mum had one of these too Dave - it eventually held old photos. They're a nice collection - thanks!

What a great idea for a photo, Warbler!

warbler

I like that one too, roseheather. I still have my mothers(front right) packed away with the odds and ends still in it just like she had it.

warbler

Thanks Floyd for the comment.

The tassel was the first thing to go Beekay. Then they started to unravel a little bit.

roseheather

OH. A nice collection to look at. I like the one behind the aqua colored one, the one with the patterned weave on the domed lid.

I think my maternal grandmother had one shaped and lidded like the one on the right. It has been many, many years, so I don't recall other detail.

Beekay

I have one like the front right one but mine doesn't have the beaded tassle. I like the crazy quilt...do we have time to go inside...

Gladstone

Interesting find Dave. Thank you.

warbler

They are all pretty interesting to me too, Sandy. I've seen several like the front right one but none of the others look familiar.

chickiemama

I can't decide which one I want.
