This is a very nice older bag--I misinterpreted it's coloration and age, but it is as it appears in the picture.

One womans junk another womans treasure

Brought up with the use it up wear it out make it do or do without discipline then wearing my mothers hand-me-down clothing I was sucked totally into this way of life when I started helping my brother market his reproduction jewelry line.
Too much stuff, not enough money...Not enough stuff. So it goes with most antique dealers or pickers and re-purpose rs . It is more a habit maybe even an illness. I have lived it long enough to be honest about this career. For many years I traveled the east coast shopping and selling in a variety of markets. I started selling online to give me more time at home when the grandchildren came along.

I have been blessed with a good eye. Champagne taste on a beer budget it is a blessing and a curse. Not wanting to become buried alive in my treasure or be totally broke sharing treasure makes room and allowance for shopping for the next great find. I am sporadic about posting some things are hard to give up. I also have a booth in a local indoor Flea Market in central CT. If you are in the area stop by the Flea Market at the Crossing in Plainville CT. I love swapping "war stories" and am a tad better at keeping the live booth stocked.

I have been distracted by crocheting ever since I joined Etsy. Seeing all the beautiful and fun things the many talented members here have made opened up a whole new world for me. I never had the patience for crochet when I was young but I really look forward to the time I spend crafting now. Crochet sometimes edges out other pursuits for a while anyway.
