    These were part of a large bag of donated garage sale rejects at Salvation this morning. I got to sort through the whole bag of pieces. All in little plastic snack bags already ID'd and priced. These are marked "made in Austria" on the back of each piece just as the bag said, so they caught my eye right away. They are quite fragile and bendable especially the large rhinestone spray. I repositioned some of the branches. It was rather squashed. The enamel floral pin is in very nice shape with no missing enamel. There were a few petals out of place but no missing stones on either one. -Mike-

      Love them! Do you work at SA? I know my local SA but they won't let me go thru the new stuff (boo hoo, oh poor me - that's okay. I'm kidding. I would be completely broke if they did.) These are wonderful and I love the enamel pin most.

      I quoted you when I updated my profile pic. Did you see?

      Why thank you Val .....I did just see that :) I'm flattered. No I don't work at Salvation. I did apply though, but didn't get hired. Too smart for my own good I I just got to be good friends with the head cashier and she is also in charge of the jewelry. I pass on what I know and help her check for the good stuff verses the everyday. They just sold a CZ and 18kt bracelet for 250 yesterday ! If I worked there I not only would be broke but starring in one of those hoarding shows :P

      I quoted you on my profile because it reminds me we are all Collectors and not of the same things thankfully! Way to go helping SA sell that bracelet for $250. I know what you mean about working at a thrift store. I did in 1980's Fort Lauderdale, Florida and I rarely got a paycheck. So many amazing things.

      God bless you, they didn't hire you, ;-)
      Because nothing will be left for others lol
      Really nice find mike, I love it

      lol...Thanks Alan :)...I'm not the greedy sort but if I really like something I want it. Provided I can afford it and it seems reasonable. I've passed up beautiful things and it's fine that others can afford it and I can't. There are always deals to be had as you well know. :)
