Gypsy Heaven

Your knapsack is bulging but you feel like there is so much more to see.  Down one side of the market a wildly striped tent calls to be seen.  You move closer and smile as you watch the gypsy dancers pass, taking with them the ringing of their tambourines and mesmerizing motion of their arms as they glide through the crowd.   

A crooked sign hanging from yards of bright ribbons blows in the slight breeze.  "Oddities" it reads.  You are intrigued and draw nearer to see what it's all about.   Cautiously you pull the flap closing the tent aside, revealing a fanciful collection of everything imaginable.  The gypsy couple sitting inside smile and nod.  You accept their unspoken invitation and begin gazing at the boxfuls of odds and ends.  Your eyes shift upward as you go noticing the beautiful beads and glitter covered stars suspended from the ceiling.  Heaven you think.  Gypsy Heaven.  Yearning to take a piece of it home, you begin to hoard the delightful contents the little tent of oddities offers. 

First, a set of gorgeous printed cards all punched and ready to add to both your ATC and Photo Carousels.
A whimsical set of transparencies grab your attention.  Also punched and just right for your Photo Carousel.  Your cheeks flush in excitement when you realize there is a complete alphabet & they're tabbed too!By now you can't believe your good fortune as you discover a complete set of 2 sided Photo Carousel cards in your favorite gypsy papers!
Next up a sticker that says it all.  G is for Gypsy.  As you read the clever words, quotes and sayings all in the love of traveling, junking & collecting; you smirk thinking... how relevant!

A spontaneous laugh leaps from your soul and through your lips, startling the gypsy woman.  You apologize but continue reading the wickedly funny T is for Teen sticker.  Anyone with a teenage girl would understand...



You notice the gypsy man hunched over a large tray, his fingers digging and sorting little metal trinkets that cover its surface.  He looks up and motions for you to come see.  Hundreds of charms are nestled in little boxes arranged in tidy rows.  Some covered in sparkles, others covered with patina but all charming.  Your fingers worm through several of the boxes and you begin dropping little treasures into the palm of your hand until it can hold no more.  You are imagining how decadent the charms will look hanging from your binding rings, ring dangles and book covers. 


But before you can move from the trinket tray you uncover a new set of book bars.  Considerably larger than their photo turn counterparts, they are ideal for journal covers and come with an extended brad to set them through even the thickest book board.

The gypsy couple begin to carefully tuck your assortment of goodies into tiny paper sacks while you watch in earnest.  Next to the wooden cash box sits a basket.  'One last look' you say to yourself and root through its contents.  A gypsy market set of brads and gaffers tape round out what you consider to be your best finds of the day.
