FRIENDS, FLEA MARKETING, FUN

A couple weeks ago I had the privilege of spending a hot summer day with my good friends Cammy and Hope and met up with a new friend, Gabrielle. We all trekked up to Pennsylvania to do a little treasure hunting. By the looks of the back of Cammy's car, I'd say we were pretty successful!
Here is a sampling of the loot I brought home! I'm so excited about everything I found, especially the rhinestone buttons. You should have seen the four of us sifting through hundreds of button cards! We were like kids in a candy shop! We all found a special sparkly button to add to our Silver Bella aprons that we are going to make!

I think the best find of the day, was this box of buttons that Cammy and I split. The sweet lady who was selling them, said it was $1 a bag or $30 for the entire box! How could you not take the WHOLE box for that price? When I brought the box home, I actually counted how many bags we had! A whopping 284! And that was after Gabrielle took some home!
We will have plenty of buttons to play with for a long long time!
All in all, it was a great day made better by great friends---looking forward to the next adventure!
Thanks for the fun fun day girls!

WOW!!! What great treasures you found. And all those buttons...good thing you are moving your studio to the bigger room so you will have more space for all the great things you are collecting! I'm glad you gals had such a fun day!
