Zippers and Other Sewing Supplies
As in: The thimble that you just found wedged between the sofa cushions.
Use a tackle box. Janet Markarian, owner of the Orient Linen Company, a shop in Orient, New York, sticks with this good old storage box. “The fly compartments are perfect for zippers, buttons, and trim,” she says. “And the clear lids let you spot what you’re looking for before you open the box.” You can also hang a bulletin board and pin up bags of spare thread and buttons.
