I hadn't forgotten about continuing my posts on my sewing collectibles -- I just got sidetracked a bit. To view the first post about the promotional items from Clark's O.N.T. from the 1800s, click here.
Now for more Clark's O.N.T. stuff --
I love finding these little cardboard boxes that the thread was delivered in to the stores. Spanning the years, the graphics are fun and different.
It's especially fun to discover them when they are full of unused thread.
The Clark Company also distributed instructional booklets such as "Sewing Secrets - The Modern Methods of Stitching-Decorating-and Finishing" (Copyright 1930).
Over the years, they have sold all kinds of thread from darning thread, crochet, to different weights and colors of sewing thread. Love all of the wooden spools!
The large decal of the logo was probably to be used on a storefront's door.
I've really enjoyed searching for Clark's collectibles over the years just because of the variety available. Plus, they can be found for pennies to a couple of dollars.
The next installment of "Sew Much Fun" will be a variety of other sewing trinkets that I have accumulated. Please come back.
