Vintage Time

From time to time I like to feature something other than purses or purse related items. Today I'm featuring and Etsy shop that sells vintage. Etsy considers vintage items anything more than 20 years old. 

Sue, the shop owner, has been in the vintage business for over 40 years. Her parents had a jewelry store when she was growing up and that's how her interest in rhinestones and costume jewelry began.  As a new bride and mother, Sue took her interest in vintage step further when she started searching for furniture for their new home. She started to go auctions with her husband and his family; learned how to strip and refinish furniture, and hunted down the best deals in jewelry, linens and fine glassware. Sue began selling on Etsy in the beginning of 2011. 

Her Etsy shop,, has a variety of vintage jewelry to offer someone who is looking for something unique and different. With Christmas just around the corner, I'm sure you can find lots of fabulous items for you to choose as gifts for friends and family. What women wouldn't like a vintage jewelry piece? It's a piece of history that can be worn for years to come. Just think! You can pass it down to the next generation. How cool is that? Here are some great finds from her shop with the links in the captions.
