A gift from my husband to me last year was this wee sewing box from Asia Gallery. Its got so much charm and what's more, it was filled with treasures. When I got home, instead of cleaning it out and putting my own sewing items in it, I sorted through the ephemera inside. Come have a look at what lies within those little drawers and even a hidden compartment. I'll post more treasures soon.
Polished to a high gleam with Asia Gallery's owner, Paul's homemade wood polish. The smell was amazing. There are many more sewing boxes and large chests of drawers as well in different bespoke styles starting around $100 upwards.
Little brass handbeaten handle.
A few wooden medallions and a teeny tiny silver tin.
Small drawers and compartments are utterly beguiling. I'm a sucker for such things. Simple things.
A wee drawer of fabric remnants and threads, etc. I had a lot of fun discovering these bits and pieces

There are many different kinds of boxes in Asia Gallery here in New Zealand that range from about $120 onwards.
More treasures and sightseeing soon. I hope you're enjoying visiting these places with me.
