In Greensboro,NC I went to http://shopdesignarchives.com/emporium/ and they have the best vintage stuff I have ever seen! Such amazing prices. In the vintage side I found a beautiful beaded orange necklace. I also got a ring that was made out of a wooden button, so simple yet so cute
On the homemade designer side,the designer for these items on the link I provided was there when I was browsing. He was super nice(plus he owns 6 french bulldogs so he won my vote!) We talked a bit about his designs. He really has some amazing stuff. I got this great bracelet from his collection- the beading is made out of bone fragments held together by a wooden clapse
I also got 2 more rings- one is a black rose and the other is silver wire with a black stone in the middle. (all handmade)
Here is a picture of all my buys!
They also had a really cool Tea section in the local designers section. They had teacups- one with Johnny Cash that says "burns burns burns" and one with Lionel Richie that says "hello"
But this one has to be my favorite:
I have also rediscovered my love for jewels and accessories I already have. Seen in thes pictures- a sweet necklace and scarf I bought 6 mths back from Nordstroms
And check out this link from celeb Nicole Richie, she is feeling the same way as I am!
