This piece shown is one of my more intricate and time consuming creations. These elements were garnered over years of thrifting, scrounging and shopping for various one-of-a-kind treasures that resulted in this design. The bakelite yellow bird was purchased at an antique shop recently with a mix of other elements for $1.00. Yes, it was a fabulous find and really pulled it together. The amber crystal element was found at another antique shop last week, for a very fair price as well. The vintage paste bracelet and focal paste piece were from yet another antique shop.
So the moral of my blog post, is that not only can you thrift at "Thrift Stores", but if you get lucky, you can thrift at your local antique shop, occasional sale store, and/or Flea Market as well.
Thanks for taking the time to view my post today. I'd love to hear a comment from you if you have the time.
