Overall buttons, probably 1930's vintage. I wonder if they came from my dad's outfit or one of his brothers'. Husky Lad seems to be out of business but Big Yank is still around!
Some of the smaller items were in this odd little jar circa 1960. Who knew they made extra meat baby food. The little tyke does look rather carnivorous. Hmmm, I used to visit the farm sometimes. This might be me.
Here are two views of what appears to be a serving spoon made out of, of all things, lead. It is so soft it would bend if you scooped up a good sized meatball.

Here's another small enigma.
The mending box had all manner of odds and ends in it. Small items of small value. But my frugal forebears could not stand the idea of parting with any of it. Oh, there was also this......
I wonder how many hours they spent hunting for this? It probably still has pinch marks on it.
