The internet is both a blessing and a curse.
I have learned so much from the information superhighway, but it also seems to drain a lot of my time away. Do you have that problem?
I have been trying to pursue a more active Facebook presence and consequently I haven't been blogging as regularly as I like to.
Plus, it's the start of peak art/craft show season and I am doing something almost every weekend between now and the first weekend of December.
All that commitment & preparation takes time away from blogging.
Anyway, I digress--- back to the post...
It's funny, as I have been regularly thrifting for a couple of years now, I have learned that certain stores seem to carry certain things. If I am looking for real leather, used belts, I hit my Salvation Army. If I am looking for picture frames to cover with polymer I usually luck out at CHKD. If I am seeking tin containers I go to the DAV thrift store.
I ALWAYS look for things at ALL the shops, it just seems that some are more prone to have those specific things...
So it was certainly surprising that I recently hit the vintage TIN jackpot at my CHKD this week. Plus it was 25% off coupon day = double score!!
I found all these for $3.

"repurposed, up cycled tin sets" for this weekend's show.
More pics of single pieces and completed sets will be coming later today on my
FB page > TTE DESIGNS
Have a great weekend & as always, I appreciate you stopping by :-D
~ Warm Regards,
|Haven't cut this one yet, but I think it's the coolest one|
|This is the lid and below is the side of the tin- love it!|
|I was able to make 3 individual disc sets, one each in blue, white and pink|
|I thought the individual snow flakes would make great winter earring pairs.|
