Hi! It's Jilly. I am SOOOOO excited to have reached 150 followers in Google Friend Connect! So excited, in fact, that I wanted to host a giveaway to say, "Thanks!". Blogging is so much fun, and I love all the people I've met since I jumped in and started this crazy thing! I appreciate the support! I'm excited to continue on in this adventure!
I found this neat shop on Etsy called Guilloche Vintage. Ellen, the lovely lady behind the shop, has such a neat story about how she was inspired to start collecting & selling vintage jewelry. She says:
I first caught the vintage bug back in the 1980's when I was still in high school. There was a Salvation Army 20 minutes from where I lived and I used to go there a look at vintage clothing. My first vintage purchase was a black man's tuxedo coat from 1850. I don't know why. I just liked it. In college it continued. Vintage shoes, vintage records, vintage purses. Vintage, more vintage was always kind of a motto. I think I got the bug from my parents who were always going to auctions and from my Mom who was a garage sale fanatic. I even had a vintage paperback collection at one time. When I found out about etsy almost 3 years ago, I thought great vintage, here is something fun that I can do. I chose vintage costume jewelry because I want to have a specialty. I like the whole handmade, vintage, fine art vibe that it has going for it. I think it's great. And I am glad that I opened my shop and will continue to work to try to improve my shop. I am always and forever trying to get better photos and better descriptions. I love looking for vintage costume jewelry to sell. I love researching and learning about now jewelry styles and eras. It's always a kick.
There are so many cool pieces of jewelry in her shop. Some of my favorites are:
Vintage Lavender Beaded Single Strand Necklace-1970's
TARA Vintage Goldtone Flower Clip Earrings-1950's
Vintage Goldtone Rope or Lariet Length Necklace with Gold Beads-1970's
