Score at the Flea Market
As if I don't have enough of my own junk, I made a trip to the flea market before it gets to cold to go. I found a vendor who repairs watches so he has a lot of old watches and small watch parts. He was amazed to find out that people are making jewelry and art out of the old parts. I scored some fabulous antique and vintage watch cases with crystal intact. The square watch case has an amber crystal - sooo cool!
Can't forget the other vendor I found who had tons of old brass hardware and skeleton keys.
It's finds like these that inspire me and make me want to go back!
Do you have a favorite piece of junk or junk store you frequent?
