Hi, Christina,
The package looks straight from the 50's or 60's. You found some great items and at a good price, too. I am sure you will find something very creative to do with them all. Have a happy week ahead. Vicki

I love the necklace find its gorgeous and there are so many things you can do with it. Congratulations on your find. I like the pipe cleaner bag as well, it does look dated a while back which makes it even more interesting, and who could beat .75 cents wow, I love coming across wonderfull treasures.

Have a blessed day,
Heidi

Have a great day in KS!
