we are proud to announce our first Secondhand Store of the Month, Hair Treasures! The brain child of Tara Bender, Hair Treasures is just what the name conjures up: Beautiful, one-of-a-kind accessories to dazzle any head of hair. Each piece is hand made with care, and Tara often incorporates secondhand items. She even does special orders! As our Secondhand Store of the month, we will be visiting Tara's work space where the magic happens. She also donated a very special Hair Treasure, made especially for our first monthly giveaway!
She shared a few words with us about the secondhand items that were used on this unique piece:
"The fabric was given to me by a lady who comes in to Eagle Creek. She has her own interior upholstery business, so she gives me drapery scraps and stuff. It feels like christmas every time she gives me a bag of goodies. This fabric was my favorite! Whoever wears it will be matching someone's curtains somewhere out there in the world. And the piece on the front is a vintage earring that i got at the flea market this winter. I'm not sure how old it is, but it had a screw-on back, and it's very '70s yellowish, so maybe somewhere in that decade."
