* Sweet Salvage & Junk In The Trunk Vintage Markets

When I started my small business 6 years ago I had no way of knowing I would meet so many new people, make such lasting friendships and work such a variety of events.

In late November I was invited to be a vendor at the once monthly 4 day show called Sweet Salvage. It began over 6 years ago and continues to grow each month. Each show has a different them and as an artist I like that.

January 2018 was my first show in the boutique at Sweet Salvage. There are 4 jewelry vendors, a clothing vendor and Winifred Street message art by Terry Parvan. For last months Backroads & Blooms event I brought in colorful pieces. Next month is Color Stories and I will bring in different colorful pieces.

The event is free and when your greeted at the entrance, you’re given a numbered lanyard. When you find a treasure, we hold it for you in the backroom so you’re not lugging it around while you shop. When you’re ready to checkout, we retrieve all of your items easy peasy.

About Ruby Mae Jewelry

I'm Leah Williams and I adore fabulous buttons and brooches, chains and charms. I find it exciting to look into old tin cans passed down through the generations. They hold buttons and hardware removed from all types of garments. I reuse old buttons and it connects me to men and women that I'll never get to meet. I leave the original thread on a button. I'm inspired to create something new from something that was forgotten. I love, love, love it.
