* Junk In The Trunk September 2016

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.

Setting up Thursday morning. I’m still so glad I made the leap and bought the trailer.


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.


Local celeb Katie Raml stopped by & Chantal looks radiant with her. My niece Grace was a really great button girl helper at the show.


Some of the Ruby Mae pieces that sold.

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.


These girls bought matching bronze bangels.


These two helpers Chantal & Aimee have work the Saturday show so many times I’ve lost track. What would I do without them?

Fellow vendor Tim bought this MOM pendant from me at the last show and then returned with this new creation.


Thank you Pearly Mae’s Resale for the vintage wardrobe for my mannequins & AZ Retro Rentals for loaning me the bench.


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.


Selfies with my friends and family, helpers and fellow vendors. At the end of Friday night, my booth neighbor Janice & I were having fun with Snapchat hence the old man filter.


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.
