 Darning Your Stockings

Stocking were expensive enough to repair, rather than throw away. I’ve given up on them completely. Such a bother.

“C-No-Darn” advertised from 1940-1953. Darnezzi advertised from 1931-1941.

There was such a thing as ‘the hosiery mending trade’ and ‘hosiery mending specialists’. Places like Foy’s advertised a ‘Hosiery Mending Section’.
