Hey hey hey. It's late in the week but here I am, I've been busy getting my ish together in my Etsy shop, finally listing items and not at crazy prices cause I freaking hate when people do that. I couldn't wait to share with you the great finds I found at the San Bernardino swap meet last Sunday. San Bernardino is the home of the 1st McDonalds, ever. It also also boasts a pretty high murder rate. I think it's 15th in the U.S. these days but don't quote me. Enough of the 187, check out this fancy beadwork!
Sorry, I had to crop out my maternity panty line. gross.
This gorgeous beaded and sequined jacket cost me $9 dollars. I think I was still bitter from our garage sale and people trying to lower my prices so I innocently said to the lady, "Will you take 7 for it?" She told me no, and that it was worth way more than that. I respected her for that. My kinda lady. Of course it was worth more than $9.00. I was just being the same a$$hole that came to my own garage sale.
These shoes have a story, I know, I'm full of them today. I saw them at the Alameda Antique Fair but passed them up as I was running low on cash. And then for days after I could not stop thinking about them and googling "victorian granny boots lace brocade." I decided I would find the vendor on the internet because I remember her having an Etsy shop. Found her on twitter, tweeted her, she listed them for me, and then they finally came home to mama with a note that she accepts ATM, oops. Here is her blog http://blog.nickienoel.com/ I found this purse that matched perfectly at a garage sale.
Car emblem necklace made by me, now available in my shop here http://www.etsy.com/listing/96518115/cadillac-car-emblem-necklace
And for my last trick, this polar bear sweater I got for $1.00! What is cuter than two polar bears choking one another on a sweater? Don't worry, I'll wait.
Byeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee thanks for visiting me.
