Flea Market Treasures


I have been "flea marketing" all weekend. I took Ruth, the fierce negotiator with me yesterday and she got me some good deals (at least until we couldn't take the 100+degree heat anymore). I found more buttons than I have ever had before. It's partly because I have stopped buying big jars and bins of buttons and focus more on the sorted baggies of superior buttons. Most times I spend less money that way than on the big jar that only ends up yielding 20 or so great buttons. Last month I didn't have much luck at all. This month I found several things that got my heart rate up!

All of this has to do with some of the new kits and such I am launching at the site next week. I am desperately trying to get my studio cleaned out and rearranged so I can get back to creating again. I hope to have some hints to share early next week!

Pin It!

I'm extremely envious of your Word Builder letter tiles!! I've been searching for those for years. I have wonderful memories of receiving new boxes of these as a child from the Catholic sisters and then sitting on the living room floor at home making words and phrases with them. I can't wait to see how you use them in your artwork.

Wow! Gorgeous. Great idea about the buttons - quality over quantity. I can relate to the flea market bug - but sometimes I can't believe I'm hauling MORE stuff home! Agh!

I'm still trying to find some good flea markets around here. I'm really new to them, so I'm never sure exactly where or how to look for "treasures". Can't wait to see the hints for next month's kit :)
