Shopping Estate Sales

My first experience shopping an estate sale was standing in a block long line at 8 am.  The house was for sale by the owner along with everything in it.  Anxious shoppers and collectors flooded all 3 floors.  It is hard to fight the urge to buy all things in sight like tiny silverware to antique furniture.  I wonder the stories behind every piece. I stuck to small notions to either keep, gift, or resell.  How do you like my finds?  If you are interested in purchasing, contact me.

Swatch Handbag

When I am resourceful, I take scrap fabrics and see what I can create.  In this case,  I sewed a crossbody handbag from Oscar de la Renta black wool with white knotted dots and Maxmara black/beige chevron wool blend.
