First a little background info....I have a special love affair with transit tokens. Odd, especially considering I grew up in a place without any public transportation. Then again, maybe this is why I am so enamored with transportation artifacts, like tokens. But I digress.
Today, I found a small trinket box at an antique mall with a dozen CTA (Chicago Transit Authority) fare tokens in it. Score! I purchased a few, and like all amazing finds, will probably sit on the edge of my workbench until it screams to me, "Make me into this!"
I also came across two vintage necklaces with really interesting beads. I am going to disassemble the necklaces, clean the beads and get them ready for my Etsy shop. I hope you like teal blue - hint ~ hint.
