A Peak into my case...

I really enjoy fixing up my case at Hwy 41 Antique Emporium. ( I think I actually enjoy the fixing up and creating a look more than actually selling! but that's another story .....) In this case I place my crochet purses I create with recycled yarn and vintage jewelry pieces ..I also have there other small treasures I may find in Estate Sales and garage sales...I will soon be going to nearby auction houses which I have been hearing are really great in our area..and I am looking forward to holding up my number and bidding over pieces ( I hope its not like gambling and I get carried away...bidding..I can get very competitive... oh dear..I can just see my car full ) anyways... I am looking forward to this, and am bringing a very seasoned friend which has gone to auctions for many years.and I am sure she will be able to hold me back should I get carried away with it all!!!!.I will be sure to post pictures with all my finds....So until then here is a Peak into my case.... have a great day!
