~**Vintage Treasures on Etsy**~

Happy Monday all, I hope you had a glorious weekend. I known its been a few days since I last posted or visited you all, life has been so busy lately. I've been doing really well with my Etsy shop and I have been busy wrapping up jewelry orders and shipping them out. I can't even begin to tell you how blessed I feel that people are actually loving my designs!!I also had a really great multiple order last week in my vintage shop as well, thank God, we really could use the money!
I wanted to show you a few new vintage items I just listed in my 88 Bella Vintage shop, and I'm still not done. Check back tomorrow for more goodies.

This is a great vintage silver tray with gorgeous etching on the inside of tray.

This is a vintage powder jar with a great rose embossed sterling silver lid. This is from my personal collection and I love it, but I just don't use it anymore and it's just too beautiful to stuff away in a box.

Vintage red watering can.
Love the hydrangeas in this, I almost changed my mind about selling it! :)

There's even more new vintage items I listed in my Etsy shop, so take a look. 

I also had to tell you that I finally got to meet one of my fellow bloggers yesterday at the flea market. I met Irma, from Cosas Bellas, and she was the nicest person ever and her vintage treasures were gorgeous!!
I might even sell my jewelry in her space at the next flea market in Irvine. She was such a sweetheart to offer. 
Thank you so much Irma, you were just absolutely gracious and  lovely!! It was a true honor to meet you!
Check out Irma's blog if you haven't already, i know you'll love it!
Have a great day all.
