Antique show finds

Sunday was my day to go to the monthly Olde Stark Antique Fair, one of my favorite shows. I managed to find these amazing photos and jewelry pieces A bag of mica flakes and this sweet little church
and one of my best finds ever, a deck of 175 playing cards, all dirty and grungy just like I like them. I think I even let out a squeal when I first saw them!!

Neat finds! Lately, it seems harder for me to find cabinet photos wherever I go, like they used to be everywhere, and so abundant, but now almost scarce in this area. (I'll have to look harder!) Love the playing cards too. Can hardly wait to see what you'll do with them! :+) Your art is amazing!
