Treasure Trove

Last week I bought all these goodies from a treasure trove. Someone inherited the items from a haberdashery her great aunt had run. There were lots lots of buttons, ribbons, lace, tread, and other odd bits.

I bought lots of buttons, from different decades of the last century. 
The black lace  I'll use it as a table runner.

Got ribbons, tread, buttons to for cuff links, beads (complete necklaces which I'll recycle), black tread for mending socks. I just liked the fine ball shape so much, I got 2 of those. 

There was also some trim made with fake pearls in green and gold tones, I'm turning this into a choker and bracelet/cuff to wear for Christmas. Is was just long enough :)
