* Junk In The Trunk Fun Photos – September 2017

The recent Junk In The Trunk Vintage Market at Westworld did not disappoint. There were so many fun shoppers & great treausres to be found. I had a photo gallery of artwork from a 1950’s student named Elizabeth Finkler. On the back of some of the drawings were signatures from teachers and occasionally their grades. These were popular at the show and most of them sold. I tried to find her family on Facebook as I thought they might be interested in them. But no luck.

One of my favorite things about the show is meeting all the children. They pop into my booth and we teach them how to make a button ponytail holder. Some kids came back this show to teach their friends what they had opreviously learned. I love all the little smiling faces.

Lots of folks struck a pose with the bridal party mannequins styled & dressed by Main Street Waltz of Gilbert.

I couldn’t have done it without my helpers and I love it when friends stop by.

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.
