Fredericksburg Trade Days & Sisters Treasures!

Fredericksburg Trade Days is coming this weekend and Sisters Treasures will be there, maybe a little slow moving on Elaine's part (her foot is still healing) but we'll be there with vintage hats on! I will be there around mid afternoon Friday since I have to work part of the day! :) We have lots of new treasures to share, plus we're going to bring a sampling of a new line tenatively called: Sisters Originals. Elaine has repurposed this cute denim jacket:
I've been working on repurposing vintage and new jewelry and clothing and am going to try to have a few pieces for sale. I have two necklaces that are works in progress.
I'm still undecided on the bottom piece to add to this necklace. Here are my choices so far, what do you think?
Thanks, for visiting our blog, Betsy

Sisters and Treasures

I can't think of anything more precious to me than my family and those I love. I'm the middle sister of three, plus we have a cool brother, Dennis. This post is about Sisters. Our vintage business of antique/junking started about five or six years ago (my bad that I don't remember exactly when!) with my older sister, Elaine and myself renting a small space in an antique mall in Brady, Texas. Our youngest sister, Arlene, isn't really into antiques but she appreciates that we do and more importantly loves to have fun, which is our main mantra with our business.
Each year we sisters have had a girls' vacation for a few days, usually at beach but last year we took our mom and went to the Big Easy, New Orleans.
We even got Arlene to join in our fun at Prom night and 70's night at our annual trip to Warrenton for Antiques week last fall.
Now, I got my creative sister to help in designing our new line of vintage repurposed jewelry with our first official piece this weekend. We combined two necklaces with pearls along with two bracelets to come up with "The Golden Pearl" necklace. What do you think?
Thank you, Sis for your creative talents! I love you!
