First up, this entire basket of vintage buttons was $8 - yay!! I tend to use a lot of buttons in my crafts and even in my scrapbooking. I had already given my mom a bunch of the black and gray ones to use for her witch dolls (I'll post about those another time!!) before I took this picture.
Then I found these wonderful large vintage Needlework Crafts magazines. There is one from 1949 and the others are from the 50's. They were $2 a piece, but well worth it...I just love the pictures and the neat vintage ads.....each magazine is crammed full of vintage goodness!
I also found some sheet music for $1, a lovely old (albeit dirty) jewelry box for $1 and a baggie of vintage crochet "thingies"....they are not really doilies, but I love the colors in them and am sure they will eventually be put to good use!
I found some ribbon (not vintage) and the whole lot was just $1, so that was great. But then I found these old books that are just awesome for $4 for the lot.....the best one is the one on top, which is a 1950's Montgomery Ward Wallpaper Catalog filled with samples.....absolutely luscious!!
I was/am so excited about these wonderful finds! I have TONS of scrapbook items/supplies that I can incorporate into my altered art, but when I stopped crafting a few years back (long story), I got rid of a lot of my vintage and collected "stuff", so am building up my collection again! I am feeling so inspired!! I am off for 4 days this holiday weekend, so am going to spend time in my home office/studio getting my craft on!!
Have a great day!
