WOW ~ What A Way to Start The Day




Ny niece let me know of a garage sale with lots of craft items including beads.
Needless to say I dashed over there -- and the photos show the treasures.
Lots of very nice beads -- and I also got a bunch of sequins -- every so often I want to use them and hate to spend for a full bag when I only need one or two --- well, today I didn't mind --- all these lovely and different sequins cost me less than one small package. All in all it was a fun morning.

What a stash! Wish I lived in your neighborhood. Don't you just love bargains like this? I picked up a bunch of vintage seed bead in a yard sale one time.

Yes, this was a wonderful find -- I'm thinking of going back --- LOL --- All of the things pictured were for a total of abut $5.00. The beads are lovely -- oh yes, and there was a package of HUNDREDS of new safety pins (like for pinning quilts) that pack was a quarter -- she also had spools of lovely trim (which I didn't get any of) and boxes and boxes of almost new yarn - a lady was purchasing most of the yarn as I left. These finds don't happen very often and I'm so glad my niece let me know about it.

Awesome lot of beads and sequins...I bet they inspire all kinds of new dolls!

Great find. I went to a large church rummage sale today and didn't find anything crafty that I could use. No beads and not a heck of a lot of jewelery, which I found really strange.
I also love your little dolls. You must be in the Chicago area, so am I for the summer at least.
Keep up the good work.
