Peddlers Fair in downtown Martinez, it happens twice in the year once in the early spring and than again the first Sat. in August. The entire town gets into the clean out mood and there is a yard sale on every corner, my neighborhood was buzzing with energy this morning. Hitting the fair early I avoided the crowds and was able to be home in time to take my afternoon nap! Having gone to DJ's class I was looking for things to use in journals. Two sellers had beautiful linens, one at the most excellent of prices and so I stocked up on lace doilies and several bags of buttons. My favorite dealer reminded me of a museum, her wares being from the 1920-30. Lovely embroidered silk scarves, feathers, beaded purses, coral, turquoise, and Kingfisher jewelry. This jewelry was made from the feathers of the kingfisher birds and very popular in the 20's, feathers were used for brooches, hairpins, and beads. In my photos you see a little collection of kingfisher beads. I could afford nothing in her booth, although she was kind enough to let me take photographs. Hope you are all having a good week-end.
