Love the vintage Big Boy bank! Here's a Big Boy Statue Figure Elias Brothers
Big Boy Statue Figure Elias Brothers Advertising | eBay
with a buy it now price of $7,499.99
I collect almost anything related to hand textile production & embellishment, including, but not limited to tools, books, patterns, ephemera, sheet music, sales displays, advertising of tools/notions, and stories about textile production. My favorite categories are anything related to crochet; what I call WWI & WWII Workbasket campaign articles (anything related to knitting/sewing/etc. for military, wounded, refugees, or patriotic home-front); pre-1920 needlework books; and aprons that were specifically made to be worn while sewing/knitting/darning/mending.
Wow, Karen, you are a real collector!! I have some vintage Workbasket magazines that I've never listed. Do they sell pretty good?
Hi Ellen, Yes, I am a real collector, an advanced one, who often writes articles for magazines on my collectibles. I suspect Workbasket magazines are sell-able---I see lots of them at antique malls, usually sold in lots. I personally, do not buy them unless very cheap and containing a pattern I like. I never buy lots of these.
So...which magazines do you write for? I would love to read your articles!
I dug the Workbasket magazines out of storage and found they are mostly late 50's and early 60's which is the MOST common of all. :) I may list them on my website soon.
Hi Ellen, Thank you for asking. I have written several articles for PieceWork magazine, a couple for Crochet Traditions, one for Paper and Advertising Collectors' Marketplace (PACM), one for Center for History of American Needlework (CHAN) Newsletter (now defunct), and numerous for the Crochet Guild of America's (CGOA's) Chain Link Newsletter. I retain rights to the PACM, CHAN, & CGOA articles and think I scanned the PACM article (about sewing machine stitch sample advertising) here earlier. I will look for it. Only interested in individual Workbaskets that contain patterns I like.
