I have old keys!!

Went out to a gentleman's home last week to shop for stuff!  You know, stuff!  His wife wanted him to clean out.  Among other things, I bought lots of keys!  Old keys to sell!  Old keys for making jewelry!  Some come with vintage tags with them.  So, you artsy people, I will have keys in my booth sometime today for you to search through to find the perfect keys to make jewelry with or use in your mixed media artwork.
Car keys, house keys, all well aged, grungy and dusty!  Wore gloves to separate them out from the dirt and the boxes they were in.
Colored keys, luggage keys, bank keys.
Check out the tops to these vintage keys!  I think they are artful just as they are!  Keys, keys, keys!
These keys come in bunches and are all priced and loaded into this shabby silver pedestal dish ready to go to Merchant Square.  I will be taking them in this morning.  Varying prices and types of keys are available.  More individual keys in plastic bags will be available next week.  Got to price them over the weekend.

I am keeping some because I want to add jewels to some for necklaces or artwork.  These won't last long because so many people are using keys in artwork.
