I LOVE dirty velvet

Here is another great flea market find from Sunday's trip. It's a big wooden box, probably 11x14 and the interior is...wait for it...dirty velvet! My fav! The faded turquoise color is positively scrumptious. Love the Godey picture on the inside top cover too. This will be a great display prop for some of my goods at Tinsel & Treasures in September.

More tomorrow!

Ohhh Ahhh! Love the blue velvet. What a great display piece. I bought a velvet box at the flea market as well just to hold my vintage lace. It was only $3 so I just bought it. When I was on Etsy this morning I just happened to see it for sale for $56. Couldn't believe my eyes.

Don't you just love when you get it for a steal.
