Another wonderful show at the Junk In The Trunk Vintage Market this past weekend.  Friday morning I was  interviewed by Jessica from Channel 3 and we chatted about my $1 Button Make and Take as well as some of my vintage button bracelets.

This gal was so excited to scoop up this vintage butterfly buckle necklace. The two older gals with their button ponytail holders saw me on the channel 3 interview and came all the way down to the show just to make their one dollar make and take.

I love having kids in my booth playing and creating with buttons. It’s always fun to have return shoppers like Natalie and her daughters stop by.

It was my first time using big balloons to mark my booth. It totally worked as I would overhear people say “I’ll meet you at the booth with the big red balloons.” You could spot my balloons from the entrance and anywhere in the event.

I put one at my sister Jennifers booth and I could see it from my booth and I referred  people over to her.

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.
