VINTAGE FLEA SUNDAY



Huge apologies for the bad photos here...but I just had to share my wonderful finds today at the flea. It's so nice when you go with the intention of finding something and you actually do. My only expectation today was buttons, and I really scored! I know the picture doesn't do it justice, but this lot has glass buttons, (the cobalt and yellow among others), so many pretty rhinestone ones, metal, pearl, and tons of mother of pearl, and shell buttons that I didn't even show because it was bags full. Everytime I look I find something else wonderful. I also picked up some great black faceted glass and vintage rhinestone pieces that are mixed in there and hard to see. Guess I haven't any excuses now but to start working on some fabric art, and maybe some new jewelry. Ohhh, the gears are turning!
