Oh its on....

*UPDATE* I had a blast selling today. The event was scheduled for 7 hours... I left $430 odd dollars richer after only three hours of selling... I got bored... what can I say. *wink* Thank you to all my friends who showed up today--- you were a nice distraction. Big hugs to you all!!!

I've got my van almost completely packed for tomorrows antique sale that I am going to be selling at. I wanted to share the ruffled liner I made for the vintage laundry basket I bought last month before I pack it into the van. I actually bought it at the same event I am going to be selling at this month.... I am keeping an eye out for more!! Ten bucks--- who sells such cuteness for $10! I am going to put a lot of vintage linens for sale inside.... cute-cute-cute. (I've made a NOT FOR SALE sign for my laundry basket!)
 
 I added a piece of cardboard at the bottom and covered it with sheet music. I can now add heavier things inside the basket if ever I need to without the liner falling through the wire mesh.
I also covered this large picture display piece with some old book pages. I am going to use this to showcase some earrings for sale. I used vintage playing cards to hold the sets of earrings....

It holds twenty four playing cards easily...
I've got a lot in reserve too. In total, I counted 60 sets of earrings... These are all made with vintage beads, but I always use new ear wires and bead pins when I make them.
Its going to be fun.... I hope. *wink*

I love the basket and have been on the hunt for one! Love the frilly liner! I wouldn't sell it either but I'll bet you get lots of offers! Good luck.

Hello from Spain: I pray that you sell all your creations. I like the presentation of the earrings on the playing cards. Also ruffled shirt is very stylish. Your work is perfect. Keep in touch
