New Beads and Displays What A Find!!

This past Friday day John and I did a date night. We haven't gone out in a long time for dinner just the two of us. Plus we never did get to do anything for his birthday either (March 6Th). So we went to Freeport so he could pick up his sunglasses that he got a gift card for. Then it was off to Portland for dinner.

When we were in Portland John said I should get some beads. Like I'm going to say no to that. So we went to Michael's I try to only buy anything that are on sale! I got all these for 40% off.

Saturday I was going to be getting my brothers kids for the weekend so I didn't really have time to work on much. I did some wire wrapping when we watched a movie. The top row will become earrings. The bottom one are going to be put on necklaces.

Here are the ones that I had time to make into earrings Saturday morning before the kids came over.

On Thursday I took my mom to Goodwill. She needed to drop off bags of clothes and I wanted to check things out.
Here is a basket I got at Goodwill to display my earrings at a shop in town. $0.99.
Here is a basket my mom was going to give to Goodwill... sorry. I'm going to use this to display my Bookmarks at a store in town or when I set my stuff up for a show.
I found these at another Goodwill. $5.00 for all of them!!! I could not believe I found jewelry displays at Goodwill!!! (maybe that should tell me something about jewelry sales?? I hope not.)
I like these. I can use them for necklaces or lay them flat for bracelets or earrings.
I got a ring display because I'm hoping to make some at some point. For now I can use it for earrings.

My son didn't want this hanging shelf in is room any more. It happened to be laying flat and I saw that it would be perfect for my little bags of earrings and bracelet for a table display!! Mine now!!

I have over 200 bags of earrings and bracelets!! So I can fill it!!
I was doing wash the other day down in my basement and tucked behind a shelf I found a metal fold up shelf that I loved and just couldn't find a place for and I didn't want to get rid of it. I'm glad I didn't because now I will use it to display my items!!! John says it looks to cluttered. What do you think????

So that all my new stuff.....well used stuff!


  1. I don't think your display looks cluttered. Each item has a good amount of space around it. It should be easy for people to pick up things easily without disturbing other things.

    All of these are such creative displays.

    I love the Goodwill Stores. They're always so full of surprises!

  2. Thanks Jackie!! I just got done looking at craft fair displays on line and there were a ton that had way more items and things on top of eachother.

    Yes Goodwill Rocks!!!
