Treasure hunting again!

Just a warning! This post is a little longer than usual! These above are some of my thrifting, junking finds from the last couple of weeks. I got 3 containers to fill with arting supplies to add to my etsy. I am loving the little crown box!
I also found these cameos-plastic, but very nice. I got 1/3 of a mayo jar filled with old buttons...really cool, some paper posies and a small bunch of millinery and a Tracy Porter mug.
Then saturday, hubby and I went out garage saling and a lady had this huge---(I mean there is alot of yardage on this baby !) yellow crocheted lace-$4. I grabbed it! Next to it was a banged up box with what looked like alot of eyelet lace..."How much?" $2 Well, I bought it without even rummaging through it because hubby was on a bender to go to every garage sale in southern calif. and I was tired. Well.....this box had yards and yards of eyelet lace...some snippets of really pretty pink and blue, this bunch of bows with little pearls-very cute and....
a stack of old collars and dickies! The one above was very detailed but there also were....these:
And these:a pretty satin sash and more collars, these lace....
Wowzers.....all for $2!!!
What will I do with all these collars and all this lace you ask? Hmmm....well I am sharing the wealth on the lace, I will show you tomorrow the thank you gifts I am making with some of the lace...some will go into my inspiration packs on etsy and the collars???? I don't know yet! I don't have a mannequin to display them on and some of them are really cool! But I will find use for them! Any suggestions??? I have listed some german scrap on my etsy site and one more of my inspiration packs using a vintage powder box... go have a look see (click on sidebar) I will be back tomorrow! Have a great night!! karen....
