Only my favorite find ever

A salesman’s sample book of shoe buckles.  Have you ever seen such a glorious thing?! Seventy-two buckles are still in the book. And the price was insanely low. So…do I sell it as is? Use the pieces in my collages?  I have a terrible time letting go of unique things like this. And I have an equally difficult time parting things out. It’s a conundrum, to say the least.

Linking up to Would You Buy It Wednesday over at Junker Newbie’s blog…

    Maybe try to sell it all together and if it doesn’t sell then maybe part it out and make things out of it? I don’t know. Just a suggestion. Hard to know what to do.

    This is the kind of item I would scoop up in a heartbeat! I would frame it!

    A great find! I definitely would have bought that salesman’s sample book. Like you, I would have a hard time deciding to leave “as is” or to use the parts in your collages….that’s a tough one!

    Pretty awesome item. Not sure I would have bought it since I don’t know what I would have done with it. Still it’s very cool.h
