Another 'good buy'


I was again lucky on Ebay when this lot came up a couple of weeks ago. 

I paid the small sum of £3.19 which included £1.20 in postage.

When I think about it (and I do sometimes think!!) this is cheaper than when I used to buy them brand new in the local shops as a kid!!!  Is this the best bargain of the 'season' do you think?

  1. I love those kind of shuttles, I bought one on e-bay and loved it, then bought another and found it was an impostor, fake a ruse and it did not hold up to the standard of the original, my heart was broken :(

  2. That is a great bargain! I keep looking for them... not very hard, I guess. I have one that has been well loved, but some day I hope to find a deal like yours!

  3. Love the Milwards - so lightweight, but hold a decent amount of thread! I wish they were still made. Congrats on your excellent buy!

  4. I was lucky to receive one of these when inheriting someone's entire tatting stash. I have left it on the card, not sure if I should use it. Are you going to use these, or just keep them as part of your collection?

    1. Well they were all I could buy when I started tatting so I am very at home with them. I'll probably put them in my collection (which is currently strewn around the house!). I'd rather use the Aero bobbin shuttles at the moment.
