The Loot


 These are the ribbons I got from Tinsel Trading Co. I fell in love with so many, but tried to limit my choices to things I knew I would really use regularly. Below is a detail shot- love the little elephants!!


Next up, Gemstone strands! I picked medium sized stones- apatite, strawberry quartz, prehnite, mixed agate, coral, Ruby quartz, aventurine, lemon chrysoprase, and some large yellow turquoise rounds.


I stocked up on some Czech glass strands- rondelles and flowers- and some interesting metal looking beads( not metal though- they are really light weight)


Clearly I was on some sort of Spring holiday in my mind- and went a little crazy with various stone briolettes in Coral, Pink, Teal, lavender, yellow and blue.

The best deal ever, large bags of faceted glass beads in various colors! Got these at City Beads- awesome shop!


Stocked up on some seed beads, different shapes and sizes- gold, greens, reds, and teal colors.

 OH OH OH! the chain! Absolutely love it. I got a couple of yards of each- Hoping I don't go through it too fast.


Sugary sugary lucite rounds- don't they look like candies! Good enough to eat.


Some vintage goodies from Tinsel Trading, dyed buttons, vintage glass cabs, and brass findings.


Looking forward to going back! Now I know where to head next time for the best deals!
