Surprise Haul

Recently, my cousin Suze sent me a surprise box of stuff she had been accumulating for me. There was some costume jewelry from her grandmother who passed away, and some vintage notions from The Scrap Exchange in Durham, NC.

I didn't photograph all of it. These are just my favorites from the lot. It's so nice when someone "gets" the kinds of things that you like, isn't it?

My absolute favorite item of it all are these little vintage ribbon things with safety pins on the back.

I think they're lingerie pins. I have seen some really elaborate ones before on Etsy going for a lot of money, but these are just simple little embellishments.

Here's another closeup of some pretty lace, brooches, and buttons.

So... The Scrap Exchange, where a lot of this stuff is from... It is a "nonprofit creative reuse center". Maybe you have something similar to this in your town? I don't, but I wish I did. Their website is interesting, and has links to some items they sell on eBay and Etsy.

Right now on Etsy they have this:

It's a 40 piece lot of upholstery trim samples that could be useful to somebody, somewhere...

And this...

It's a 12 pound box full of wallpaper samples! I'm pretty sure the majority of it would be a lot more "modern" than I would like, but I don't know... it might be worth the gamble? Hmm...

So, THANK YOU to Cousin Suze for the box of stuff, and for opening my eyes to the Scrap Exchange!

And, while I'm on this post about my crafting haul - did you know that there are videos of people on Youtube who just show their scrapbooking and crafting hauls? It's a weird little genre of people who videotape things they buy on sale at Michael's and whatnot. I find it a bit odd. I was introduced to this phenomenon by one of my eBay customers who did a video of her eBay haul from me. WARNING: poor quality video and person with the sniffles talking *LOL*.

And if you don't find that entertaining, then go here for some REAL entertainment. It is a blog I discovered last night that will prove to be a real bounty of material for future "fancy dancing" posts. You've been warned...

Apple did not fully give into the larger 5-inch smartphone screen, but improvements have been made to its 4-inch iPhone screen. Apple treads a different path from the ongoing trends in the smartphone market.
