    Bring back wooden cotton reels! Plastic just doesn’t cut it. In fifty years time no one is going to say, ‘Oh look, what a gorgeous selection of plastic cotton reels, I must photograph them!’

    Modern life is so aesthetically displeasing.

    I have a tin the same as this one, was wondering if it is worth anything. It has old film rolls in it and a film viewscope.

  4. Hm, not sure Christine – I suspect they’re probably not worth anything, but they’re lovely regardless.
