Thimbles for the sewing memorabilia lover

I never thought much about thimbles as being a collectible.  My mother always has had one in her sewing box–the typical cheap metal silver colored one.  I thought their only reason for being around was to keep your finger from getting pricked by a needle.

That is–until a recent trip to a local flea market I came across a collection of them.  I quickly found out that they come in many forms, like this glass millifiori thimble.

You can see this great thimble in my Etsy shop here.  Others are made out of sterling silver, like this German one.

You can see it in my Etsy shop here.  There are stone, wood, enameled and even advertising thimbles for you to look for.  There are even pottery ones that you could find with different motifs like flowers or birds.

You can see all of the thimbles that I have for sale in my Etsy shop here.  What kinds of thimbles have you run across?
