007. Tools of the trade

007.  Tools of the trade

These items were found at an antique mall, packaged together in a plastic bag... $2.00.

One of my sisters worked at a nursing home when she was in high school and I recall that one of the residents taught her to tat... I wonder if she remembers how.

The two stitch holders at uppermost left have "BOYE" embossed on them. I adore the two smallest -- for socks, mittens, gloves, baby things?

I don't know what the long L-shaped needle at bottom left is for, and I think the two white things are possibly stays.

I just love finding little bags and boxes of usable treasure.
