* Junk In The Trunk May 2017

 

Away I went, all packed up and ready for load in. It was the first time I hooked my trailer up by myself. Note to self, don’t wait until it’s dark when it’s time to come home.

Scoops of buttons were a hit

 

 

A few of the pieces picked or created at the show.

A big thank you to my booth helpers Chandal, Adriana, Julie, Aimme, Nancy & Lily. We ar wearing our new aprons from the Pink Apron. I bought embroidered table runners from SAS fabrics in Tempe and she turned them into aprons.

Our mannequins made the New Times again. They are dressed in vintage by Pearly Mae’s resale

Robin loved this piece and was going to hang it in her laundry room. Lots of fun vintage brooches.

Our ballons stuck out, my sisters is one aisle away from mine.

It makes me so happy to have children in my booth. Some learn how to make a button ponytail holder.

About Ruby Mae Jewelry

I'm Leah Williams and I adore fabulous buttons and brooches , chains and charms. I find it exciting to look into old tin cans passed down through the generations. They hold buttons and hardware removed from all types of garments. I reuse old buttons and it connects me to men and women that I'll never get to meet. I'm a "no harm button artist" and as such I don't alter, cut, flatten or change intact vintage buttons. I also leave the original thread on a button. I'm inspired to create something new from something that was forgotten. I love, love, love it.
