This week, before all four of us fell ill to the stomach flu (I'll spare you the details but I have have been mostly on the sofa for 2~3 days), my Mom and I went to a small town full of antiques. It's also where there's a really nice fabric shop.
Anyway, have I ever mentioned that I have been looking for vintage buckles-even new ones- for, ever? I have checked the usual: Joann's, quilt shops, knitting shops, craft shops, even my faithful scrapbook boutique. But no.
I have been meaning to make knit hats, bags, and so forth, all with buckles. So many ideas-so, no many buckles.
Well that all changed the other day.
We found shop after shop full of buckles! And really good prices too. Most of these are Bakelite and they're all vintage. How neat is that?! I was so happy I bought the whole card and most of another one. And some in other stores too!
I have so many now I'm contemplating putting some up for sale in the shop-but not sure yet. Maybe if there's an interest, and I don't use them all, lol.
Does anyone else love these kinds of things?
We Also found many many vintage buttons. I love the old packaging cards they're on. Some of these are in really good shape.
I love the little red one with the flowers cut out towards the upper left.
Have you found any good supplies lately?
