Type Drawer of Tiny Things

I finally remembered to take new photos of my type drawer of tiny things as it’s expanded so much since I last blogged about it. I took a few photos and stitched them together so that you can see everything.

I was going to add notes on top with what everything was but it turns out Flickr removed that feature! So instead I just made another image for you to compare (click on both images to see larger versions). It’s a pretty good mix of childhood stuff, things I bought and picked up on my travels, my own products and things people have gifted me. Quite a few people who read this have made me tiny things so thank you again. I still have a bit of space left so that’s always a great gift idea.
