What to do with vintage supplies

Originally uploaded by ritualbath

My mother and I often pick up craft and sewing supplies at thrift stores. Sometimes I come across some gems, like the engraved pearl buttons that would be lovely on some elegant silk something.

Other times I get just regular supplies like buttons and zippers. I love finding fabric but with all the bad double knit out there it doesn't happen much any more.

Now I have this great heavy brass separating zipper.

I was going to make a great overnight bag with it but then noticed it was separating, and now I am wondering if it shouldn't be some garment to use that separating feature.

Its about sixteen inches long.

What do you think?
