Oh I have a few jewelry pieces and trinkets but it’s not all vintage. I do love vintage, MCM in particular. I will try to get some pics tonight...at least if I can’t get out to the shops I can relive the memories, lol

I have very much enjoyed browsing this thread!!

Ohhh a new person with new finds!!!!!! Can't wait to see. I really wish I had something to contribute but everything is closed. I miss the church rummage sale, the odd spring tag sale you happen to stumble upon, the indoor flea markets. It's okay though there will be more finds eventually.

I wear this bracelet often.Sterling with some nice detail and baroque pearls. I haven’t definitively traced the markings but I think it’s 70’s-80’s.

I wear this ring and bracelet less, sterling and enamel. I’m clumsy and afraid I’ll bang up the enamel, lol.

I’m a little embarrassed to show this before it’s cleaned up a little but it’s a recent find at an estate sale. A rather ornate sterling shoe horn...for $0.50. I guess the tarnish scared everyone else away. I love all the animals on the handle. EE66B8E1-DCA3-4569-8A01-25A1DF46A094.jpeg 67725FA8-B7CA-462B-816A-EDEDF7066B21.jpeg

Nice! Is that a kiwi on there? Are there any marks? It's really cool!
And those lamps are really wild! I have two Murano glass rings that I love.

It is a kiwi. There are marks but I seem to have great difficulty tracking down what they mean.

All I can say is that no Goodwill I’ve ever been to has anyone who really looks over the lamps. These were $10 and $8.
:oops2::cool2:=)2 We were out of town and they didn’t have boxes for them. I strapped them in with the seatbelts and found the nearest store with bubble wrap and boxes. LOL.

I want to keep but them but I really don‘t think I’ll wear them. I have been thinking about taking them apart to make a few beaded snowflake ornaments for my Christmas tree. I struggle with the thought... I don’t want to be like those people who chalk paint over beautiful mid century walnut furniture.

Well I might have to get out of here, it’s not helping the withdrawal. Not only have I read all 36 pages of this topic drooling over the stories and finds, but I’ve been binge watching UK Antiques Roadshow on Pluto. I‘ve considered asking DH to set up a garage sale in my own garage, with all my stuff so that I can “shop” and get excited at what I find.

But I should not be rude when you all have been so nice so I’ll post a pic for Sunday, lol. Right now this group of swung glass vases is in a terrible location on the basement mantle. Once we finish some renovations upstairs they’ll be brought up again and displayed in a lighter/brighter spot where they’ll look much better. ED0B1707-3DF3-4385-8277-B614C682B5A2.jpeg

@1ofakind, love the variety of colors and the different heights add a lot of visual interest. We could use colorful right now, something nice to look at makes life a little sweeter.

Cleaning out pics on my phone today...this was from the last trip out of town about a month before everything closed up. It’s a fantastic 70’s ceramic swag lamp. Great colors and nice shape. And then things shifted in the back of the car...

@1ofakind, oh no! That is the worst when you have a treasure and it gets broken.

I bought a music box that plays The Beatles "Here Comes The Sun" and the day I bought it the bag dropped from my hands as I was getting out of the car and it fell on the pavement chipping the bottom of the previously pristine music box. Ugh, one of the worst feelings I swear.

Well that’s a sad event. I do try to be careful but accidents happen. :???:
There are some thrift stores that are just careless with their donations...I hate seeing the fresh chips and cracks on items because they’ve been carelessly thrown in a huge bin. The saddest was a rare Stangl Pottery Chinese Pheasant with the tip of his beak freshly chipped off. Fortunately they didn’t just throw him in the trash bin so I was able to rescue him for just a few dollars. It will be worth it to have him professionally repaired...a nose job so to speak.

This is true, so many times at Goodwill I have seen treasures just thrown in the bin to be put out. Of course the end up broken, very disappointing!

Does it count as a haul if I find it cleaning out my jewelry box? It’s pretty slim pickings over here, lol.

i think this tri colored gold pendant will become a fun spinning ring. I wore it a lot before my original e-ring was made into an everyday pendant. It was a gift from DH so I’d get to wear it again! FCF98C6B-FB47-426D-8FD1-214A56633390.jpeg

I was thinking something like this... 2A14A529-DB30-40CF-AF37-83DDF5391EF7.jpeg

Not really old but two Troll beads a dragon and guardian angel both are solid silver

I love looking at all the great finds in this thread but I somehow missed the Trollbeads in the first post that started it all. Did this all come from the same estate? If so, I think it’s funny that the two TB pendants here together are the naughty dragon and the guardian angel.... Anyway, I am here laughing to myself imagining the person that owned them thinking—I wore the naughty dragon yesterday so maybe I need the guardian angel today....
