Embellishing. Merchandising.

A thrift store jar is a jar.  Add a few little embellishments and it becomes a treasure!

And it doesn’t have to be anything grand or fancy.   Simple can be better because the simpler the look, the more flexible it is to fitting in with ANY decorating style your customers may love.

I think I may be ADDICTED to buying old crochet thread spools like this.  I just cannot resist them if they are white/cream/tan colors!  I fill jars with them.  Make bundles of them for those shoppers who HAVE their own jar already and just want to fill it.  I decided I also like placing single spools here and there, and have seen lots of other decorators do so.  SO, I decided to add a little embellishing to my single spools!

Again, nothing fancy!  Just dug through my box of tea stained paper scraps and wrapped a piece around each spool.  Tied a vintage key and a hand stamped tag on one; and glued buttons to the paper of the other, lace above and below; then a tiny repro skeleton key.

Sweet and simple.

And now for sale in my booth at Stars!

Stars is open seven days a week; 11am – 6pm.
