I have modern versions and I like mine. I found a really small one and placed it inside the larger one. The small one holds my scissors, lip balm, measuring tape, needle guide, and various other whatnots!
Oh, I have one of those. I got it for Christmas one year from my grandma when I was a kid. (I crocheted a little when I was young, but no one really knew how to teach me very well, because I am left handed.) It's in storage. I really should get it out and put it to some good use!
Thanks for sharing!
