I lucked into some vintage finds at a thrift store today. I’m pretty pleased with them! How much did I pay? Now that’s my little secret!

Some of my latest finds. A couple will take up residence with the costume gallery. The rest will go into my store. I’ll have fun figuring out how I want to enhance or embellish with crochet. Though I pick up vintage pieces with all this in mind, I also usually bring everything to shows and will put into my store when I haven’t gotten to them yet. I can only work so fast with my two hands, so I’ll toss a coin and see what gets attention first. If it disappears from my listings, it probably means I’m working with it. Unless it’s show-time. Everything in my on-line store goes with me to shows.
I love to take vintage jewelry and give it new life and enthusiasm by combining it with crochet embellishment. Sometimes I do this by recreating them into a new piece of jewelry, like a necklace, but they also make wonder hat pins for my hats. These are some of the latest vintage finds I’m brainstorming with. Except in the case of broken jewelry (or lone earrings), I prefer to keep the original jewelry piece intact, so no chance of destroying a future collectible. Pictured here: an emerald green rhinestone flower/circle pin, a gold earring turned into a button and an ornate square enamel pin. We’ll see what all I come up with.

Again, the sale doesn’t begin until tonight: 5 – 11pm CT!
* Fair warning, I’ve noticed that the Animoto videos sometimes play the music twice in a row, even though the video portion is done. So wait for the music to stop before clicking on the 2nd video, or they’ll both play at once.
