Do you like vintage jewelry? I know I do, but I rarely wear any of it these days. Sad, but true. Somehow the brooch above doesn't go too well with my jeans & sweatshirt. I remember saving my money back in the 1960s to be able to buy presents for my Mom & Dad...and this is one I bought for Mom. It was probably from Higbee's...you know...the department store shown in "A Christmas Story". Only I grew up in the real Higbee's, which is no longer open. Neither are Halle Bros. or May Company or Sterling Linder. Very sad. Those were the days in Cleveland OH.
Anyway, I've decided to begin to part with some of my vintage jewelry. I have it available in my Etsy shop now, including those pretty bells. Perhaps you're still looking for an unusual gift for someone...or maybe Santa needs to get it for you. I know "Santa" has left quite a few gifts under my tree over the years...I love playing Santa, even to myself.
Here are more of the pieces available. I'd love for them to find a good home. Really. It has taken me a long time to decide to start to part with them. They need to be loved by someone else now.
There's even a tie clip that belonged to my Dad. I bought it for him at Halle Bros. when I worked there. He collected coins & loved wearing this tie clip.
I now return to my tree decorating...it's going slowly, but that's another story for another day. Let's just say I'm a bit anal about the tree...and I'll be moving things around on it for quite some time.
Seriously. I have references.
