found in the basement 2


A practical device for the tailoring housewife.

You just use this little device to blow talcum powder in a straight angle from the floor - to get an even length on your skirt. There's even some talcum left in the paper bag. I have to remember to use this device next time I'm home tailoring. Isn't the box fantastic?

yes - Charlotte and Marie-Louise - the basement is full of treasures. And so is the attic. My grandfather kept so much stuff from India, my father as well and my maternal grandmother collected and kept a lot of stuff...

Thereza: it's a bit hard to explain .. but when you get a closer look you'll get it. You mount this little "tripod" and put talcum in the mouthpiece. Then you blow the powder out in a line and turn with your' skirt. Hm - that explanation didn't make much sense did it?

En sån där puffare är ju fantastisk! Minns att jag tyckte det redan när jag var liten. Vad har du för spännande källare? Finns det mycket kvar?
