    These are some of my jewelry finds at the Flea Market, and Thrift stores, from the last few weeks. I really like them all, but I think my best buy was the sterling silver leaf brooch that I got at the Thrift store on Easter Sunday, yellow tag 50% off the $4.99 price. It's a 1940's STERLING BY JEWELART leaf brooch, that I was very happy to get at that price! :^)
    Others that stand out, is the Avon marcasite Hummingbird brooch, the green stone wire wrap pendent, and the sterling Canada souvenir spoon, and Maple Leaf brooch, that I may have posted before.
    I have a link to one on an Etsy site, that has more info that I'll post in comments, it's one I found searching on Google image.
    I took a few more pictures, but happy to take close-ups of any that you would like to see better.
    Thank you so much for stopping for a look! Comments or questions always welcome! :^)

      Great finds Bill! The sterling silver leaf brooch is very nice :-) And I love the COF medallion thing-a-ma-jig. It would make a very cool necklace w/chunky beads. Hummingbird brooch XOXO. Do you also have a jet or mourning dress do-dad? Lots of great finds - thanks for sharing :-)

      Thanks for your comment Thomas, my wife loves Hummingbirds too, and has feeders around the yard, for them, and has many Hummingbird items around the house too, books, videos, figurines, plaques, pictures, and a calendar too, along with jewelry pieces. I found this one at a Lion Club Thrift store in town, last weekend, it was 1/2 off so only .50 cents, had to get it, even though I knew she had one already! :^) It's from Avon 1980-90's I think.
      Thank you all for the love,

      Messed that up, sorry Mary my eyes are tired, I thought it said vetraio, not vallentino! My bad! Thank you so much for the love! :^)

      Thank you for the comment Mary, I got that 2 weeks ago at the flea, the seller didn't know anything about it, and had just got it out of his storage, from years ago and never looked at it, some of the pieces looked like they were made as salesmen samples, like this COF, I tried to find it, but nothing. The clasps on it are for a woven thread cord I think, but never used. I thought it looked cool too, for something like that, but really wanted to find something out about it, most of the stuff was from late 1800-1920, and still new, I wanted to buy it all, and could have got it cheap, but just don't have the room for it! :^( The same reason, the seller was getting rid of it!

      Hi Bill, what a lovely lot you have here!
      Curious about the COF piece, is this Masonic or some fraternal piece?
    9. TassieDevil TassieDevil, 2 years ago
      Woops!! Sorry, should have noticed what you said already!!

      Boy, you had yourself a good time! Love the maple leaf brooch. :-)))))

      That's ok Judy, I think it may be a salesmen's sample, just because the of the mix, and that one has all the bells and whistles! :^) It was one of those buys that 10yrs ago I would have bought it all, every box was very dusty, yet new, or close to, inside the boxes, and most things over 100yrs old! My wife won't let me get another shed, unless I sell enough to pay for it, but then I wouldn't need another! :^)

      Hi Bonnie, the sterling, or the enamel one? I like them both, but the enamel one I put there to go with the spoon, I may have posted that before. The last few weeks not many finds, but what I did find, was nice, maybe because I searched a little better, to find them! :^)
      Thank you Judy and Bonnie, for your comments, always nice to get and starts more conversation, about the post!
      I really thank all of you for looking, and loving, too!

      Hi bill - the big sterling one just below the hummingbird, which I also find to be really pretty.
    14. billretirecoll billretirecoll, 2 years ago
      I thought so Bonnie, I know how much you like sterling, me too! :^)
