I'm having a bit of a New York reminiscence as I am hoping to go back there in a month as an election tourist. Is anyone else planning to go?

Anyway, these are framed beaded handbags which I saw at my aunt's house in Pittsburgh during my trip. I like the idea - she's a very Martha Stewart type, always making things. I'm trying to encourage her to have an Etsy shop, but she doesn't really know how to turn on a computer. One thing about the US is that there definitely are better bargains to be had at garage sales and in thrift stores than in the UK, where anything retro has already been snapped up to be sold at extortionately priced salvage yards such as Lassco.
