Vintage Tony Lama Butterfly Boots

What a great vintage find! These vintage 1970s Tony Lama boots are going up in my Etsy shop. Here are some extra photos (click each image for a bigger picture):

Today you see a lot of embroidered boots, but hardly any cutout/underlay work. These gawjus boots have two layers of underlay -- in chocolate brown and fawn tan. Even the smaller half butterflies at the top are cut out. Nice cutaway heel too!

Discount Pricing on Vintage Sequins

Wow, I currently have over 70 colors and styles of vintage sequins listed in my seriousbeader Etsy shop. Most are on strands, fresh from the factory master hanks. I stock cupped and flat sequins, large and small, in a wide range of colors and finishes, as well as a few of the diamond shaped, single hole spangles used in knitting and for fringe.

So anyway, starting this year I'm offering a new discount on sequin strands -- and here's how it works:

Mix and match 5 or more full strands for a 10% discount. HERE'S HOW:

  1. Contact me via Etsy with your sequin choices (and anything else you want...). You can copy and paste the links or just type the sequin names into your message.
  2. I'll set up a reserved listing for you with the adjusted price.
  3. You make the purchase (and save a little $$ on shipping too!)

~ The discount applies only to full single strands of sequins, 5 or more strands.
~ Sorry, I cannot apply your discount after the purchase.

As if I didn't have enough up already, I'm adding new colors just about every week. Here's my favorite color of the week!
