These are two adorable sewing collectibles; Woolworth Sewing Needles and JP Coats Embroidery Thread. The little booklet of Woolworth Sewing Needles is sweet: 79 Needles for 10 cents! Wow! The outer jacket has a picture of the Original Woolworth building.

Frank Winfield Woolworth was an American entrepreneur, the founder of F. W. Woolworth Company, and the operator of variety stores known as "Five-and-Dimes" which featured a selection of low-priced merchandise.

The Woolworth Building is an early American skyscraper designed by architect Cass Gilbert located at 233 Broadway in the Tribeca neighborhood of Manhattan in New York City. It was the tallest building in the world from 1913 to 1930, with a height of 792 feet.

The Woolworth Building transformed New York City's skyline and remains one of the most famous skyscrapers in the country. It is a Gothic marvel designed by architect Cass Gilbert for millionaire five-and-dime store owner Frank Woolworth.

The growth and expansion of the company contributed to its downfall. The Woolworth company moved away from its five-and-dime roots and placed less emphasis on its department store chain as it focused on its specialty stores. Still, the company was unable to compete with other chains that had eroded its market share.

On January 14, 1994, in order to repay the $1.7 billion debt incurred from international specialty store expansion, the Woolworth Corporation sold most of the Woolco Canada stores to Walmart. Walmart did not acquire the Woolco stores that were either unionized or had downtown locations.

In 1802 James Coats set up a weaving business in Scotland. In 1826 he opened a cotton mill at Ferguslie to produce his own thread and, when he retired in 1830, his sons, James & Peter, took up the business under the name of J. & P. Coats. Many sewing items today still have the trademark of J&P Coats.
