Over time I have accumulated a fair number of collectible items that I have treasured and enjoyed for many years. I am getting to the point where I just don’t need them anymore and it is time for them to find new homes where they will be loved and appreciated by the next generation.

I have researched all the items to the best of my ability to provide accurate information about them, but there may be some information I have missed or have been unable to find. When this is the case, I opt for my best reasonable guess as to their value and heritage. I always welcome new information or input from the more knowledgeable collectors out there, so please do let me know if there is anything I can add.

I also repair and refurbish vintage costume jewelry pieces using glass rhinestones (including Swarovski), faux turquoise & other cabochons, copper, brass, sterling silver, and silver and gold tone metals. Most of the pieces are previously gently used and may show some signs of wear. I always note any obvious damage or condition issue.
