This haberdashery or notions store,
is filled with ribbons, buttons, needlework patterns and materials,
threads, and all manner of things.
This is a drawer filled with colorful cards.
I was remiss in not knowing for sure how they are used,
but I guessed that they were for wrapping embroidery threads
of several colors for a single project.
What I really wonder is
WHY did I not buy a few to bring home?
