More Vintage Finds!

Here are more vintage finds from my treasure hunting weekend. Lots of old bone buttons & old fabric covered buttons. Instead of keeping them in the old ziploc baggies that I bought them in, I put them in an old printers box I already had. A great storage idea and I can see them when I am working!
Found bunches of old lace, old cotton rick-rack and great old faded threads.....
A very well worn girls shoes, old cork lined bottle caps, rusty cabinet keys, vintage dolly dresses and more old threads.....
Love this antique sewing pin cushion! And an old faded soft cotton blue stripe coverlet.
Cool vintage halloween deco stuff....with vintage matching threads.....
Those old shoes with an old antique tiny suitcase and an old wooden childs hanger.
Cool vintage tin pail.
And more of those wonderful old dolly dresses!

Wendy, all these things are so perfect to become part of one of your beautiful creations. Great shopping, I know that each and every one of these things will become a part of a bear, or ellie.
