Today's happenings

Today I put a few more items in my booth at Merchant Square. I had an inquiry about where Merchant Square is located so I added a picture (on the left) of their business card as well as a link to their web site. The web site is still a "work in progress," but at least you can get address and phone number information. This weekend, January 30 to February 1 there will be a mall wide sale. On Saturday morning, beginning at 7 a.m., there is a parking lot flea market. Good stuff there!! If you live in the Phoenix area, Merchant Square is located one block south of Warner on Arizona Avenue.

After I left Merchant Square I headed over to Ruffler's Roost's new store in Chandler. They have opened a second store and I couldn't be happier!! There are ribbons and trims galore! Every color, type and size you could want! I have visited their Mesa store a few times, but it is really FAR away for me. This one on Ray Road is much closer.
Look what I found at Rustler's Roost today! Beautiful Valentine ribbons and trims! Can't wait to use these! Don't you love the ribbons with roses on them?!Found today at Merchant Square were these two bags of notions. I love the red and white seam binding in the bag on the left. And the blue and white trim next to it. I bought the thread bag so I could put two small spools on top of this cute little sewing cabinet I found at a yard sale. It will be for sale in Merchant Square by the end of the week.This little cabinet is vintage and made in Japan. I thought it was too cute! I need a tomato pin cushion for it, but haven't found one. Guess I really don't need it.This red box was a find at a thrift store. I decided to make it a Valentine display box. I made the pretty Valentine for the lid and then filled it with my Valentine tags and vintage and antique Valentine-themed postcards.This is a close up of the little Valentine on the lid. The lid actually had some logo on it and I wanted to cover it up.
