Huge knitting stash off Craigslist

So I saw this posting and was mostly interested in the "tote" that apparently belonged to the woman's grandmother and great-grandmother. I'm not sure it's that old, but I love it. It also came with a big stash of supplies - all of it for $25!! I took inventory when I got home. See the pics:
