(circa 1930's) from Real Silk Hosiery Mills, Inc. Indiannapolis, Ind.
Real Silk Company was founded in 1922 by J.A. and L.L. Goodman. The company ran knitting mills which manufacture hosiery, lingerie, and underwear. At its peak, the company's sales volume averaged more than 1 million dozen pairs of women's hosiery a year.
The original purpose of this blog was to showcase and perhaps sell sewing items that I have made. Due to many circumstances this has become impossible this year. After moving house and after Christmas 2008, the production should be able to continue in the New Year - but until then, I will show you some of the vintage notions that I have amongst my sewing collection. While my blog "crazyhaberdasher" is also about the vintage sewing collection, on "haveanotion" I will show you "another side" of the collection. Please do remember that the posts wont always be as frequent as they should be due to moving house.
