Yes Sir, Yes Sir, Three Bags Full

One full of lenses ...



One full of thread....



And one full of silver teeth pulled from the dead!



Not really. But that is what the man at the flea market told me, he said his dad worked in a mortuary and I believed him at first! Until I heard my husband snicker behind me. Ah well, it so intrigued me I couldn't help but take a second look and then I just had to buy!
This bag full of crowns and partials has to be my strangest flea market purchase to date. My husband gave up asking long ago, but I'm pretty sure I saw an eyebrow lift just a little bit.
Not to worry though, I can already see one of these tiny silver crowns on the head of a little altered doll. Tooth fairy anyone?

I've opened an Etsy store and closed up shop on ebay and I've been busy busy busy listing my oddities and treasures for you to create with. I've done a lot of buying in the past couple of weeks so keep checking!

  5. Wow...what great finds that you came across! Ok..you had me going on the silver teeth thing! My question is..."Just where DID these things come from"??!! I can't wait to see what you do with them!

    I have a few teeth samples that I found in an antique store. I think they were used as models for teeth size and colors when people needed a tooth made. All I have to do, now, is find where I put them!! How cool would it be to use the two items together somehow??
