Let's Talk Vintage #6: The Jewelry Sale

Welcome to Let's Talk Vintage! This is my sixth week and I'm thrilled to see what you've found, created, or have to share with us.


This week I'm sharing my second experience attending a local library's jewelry sale. I guess book sales are just not enough, they need to sell jewelry too!



You may remember my post about it last year.... where I kind of gave a play by play on the "mad dash" and how I used my own strategy to find some vintage oldies but goodies.



This year was pretty much the same, with two dealers in particular that must get up at the crack of dawn and start waiting in line because they were the first ones waiting in line again. (I was 8th!) I decided to head in a different direction than they (they go for the gold) because this year the library started offering purses and scarves, accessories too. That's how I found this adorable and beautiful bridal box purse:



 
 
The picture does not do it justice! I love it
and wish I could keep it for myself.
(Hmmmm...Plotting events I can go to
just so I can carry it around. Tee hee!)
 
And another pretty find was the golden
Estee Lauder compact below:
 
 
 
Then after I checked out and paid for my finds,
 I picked Bebe up from school and
we both went back together!
 
That's when I saw this red crystal beauty
... still at the sale, not purchased by
anyone yet. It was made in Western
Germany. I couldn't believe it was
still there! I can just see it now in
a Christmas wedding or vintage prom.
 
Here are some of the other pieces
I thought were too irresistible to
leave behind:
 
 
One of my most surprising finds
was the little fur cuff links seen
in the right hand side of the photo above.
 
Too cute!
 
What did you find this week?

It's your turn ... Let's Talk Vintage!

Beautiful. I haven't found anything this week, mostly because I haven't gone outdoors for 2 days! Big snow. Have a wonderful Veterans' Day.

That purse is beautiful, what a great find. I'm really liking all the jewelry too, especially the fuzzy cuff links. Thanks for sharing your finds at VIParty.
