Lucky me :)

What could be better for a bookbinder of vintage journals than to find authentic vintage supplies? I was so thrilled to find this beautiful waxed thread for sale last weekend. Real collector’s item! My only regret was that the man only had 4 spools left. Three of them were produced by Droulers-Vernier, Lille - a French manufacturer specialized in leather industry, active from the 19th to the first half of the 20th century.
Lucky me!

What a wonderful find - and you'll make really beautiful books from them.
