Making it a Vintage Trip cont.

Okay seriously, this has to be the most amazing of all my finds. I found these old button and charm cards (very old) folded up into a little zip lock bag. You could not even see what it was unless you took it out and unfolded it. This was at a thrift shop and no price was attached. Some of these bold buttons are glass and they are all very unique and interesting. The other card with the tree and tiny charms sewn on is so unusual. These tiny charms will be researched a bit more. I don't know how old they are , but i am guessing the 30's on these. but i took it up to the checkout and the girl there did not want to price it , so she called over a superior. I was holding my breath, until he said 50 cents. this was definitely my most amazing vintage find on this last trip.
An old filigree brass finding, the middle one is lead and bends very easily, and the top piece is a little pewter shell from an antique shop.
These tiny charms are just a fraction of an inch. I love to imagine what child so lovingly sewed these on the cards.
More of the good stuff. Doilies, yellow ric rac trim intertwined in this vintage trim. The puffy hearts are German store stock. and the letters shown here are very old also.
