Aren't these little coin purses adorable? There are six sweet little coin purses sprinkled throughout the Barn Chic Antiques booth at the Austin Antique Mall, and all were handmade by a new friend of mine, Caitlin. Caitlin just went full time with her new business Rally Made; she is a very talented seamstress putting her creative talents to use, transforming vintage fabrics into beautiful bags, purses, pillows, and more. She has a great start on her Etsy business and has pictures for her listings that look as good as all the pro-Etsyers out there...and this is only her first full month in! I am now featuring her coin purses in my booth, but Caitlin is so talented and makes much more than just small purses - recycle bin liners, tote bags, e-reader cases, and full size purses complete with leather straps. Once I saw that she uses feed sacks to create some of her handmade goodies, I asked her to make my cherished Funk's seed sack into a pillow - but then she suggested that it might look great as a tote, and now I can't wait to see it!
I just love these little purses and they look great throughout the booth...
but even better in your handbag!
I spent a good couple of hours at the booth today rearranging and adding some new finds - here is how it looked this morning; I'm not sure how it looks right now as I sold a few of my screens today -yay!
This shelf features two of my newest treasures that I bought from Janet yesterday at the Citywide Garage Sale!
