vintage beaded garlands, bring on the bling.

i have my work cut out for me.

i am selling my collection of vintage
beaded christmas garland.

i didn't realize how many there were
until i started pulling them out of storage.

 there are 15 strands of pink beaded garland
just in this pile.

i'll be busy for awhile.

come by and take a look as i get them listed.

a lucky hunch.

the sun is shining!

i have to admit that i don't buy much for myself anymore.
i have more than enough "stuff".

but something about a recent estate sale ad caught my attention so 
i decided to take a look.

so my first step was to google map the address.
but there was no such street.

then i had to get creative.  i found an address that looked similar
and off i went.

my tenacity paid off and i found the sale, but because of the address error
a lot of others didn't.  lucky for me.  not so good for the sellers.

and i love what i found.

these are my favorite things.  a lovely old wooden bowl and
pretty old primitive cutlery.

have you ever had a lucky hunch that has gotten you a wonderful find?
