    I feel Bad For not Posting, for so long, because of the Stay at Home Order in California, I chose not to go to the Flea Market, even though it has been open. If a Flea Market isn't a place of gathering, I don't know why any place is closed! In my opinion anyway! I feel Safer not going! :^D These are what I found on the last day that I went, a month ago! Just a Show, If you want to know about any piece just let me know, and I'll do a Closer Look, or just tell what I do know about them! I did find my first Sherman Jewelry Necklace though, but was having trouble getting a good focus of it! I'm going to post one more group of things, maybe tomorrow, that I found the same week that I found the Conn Trombone, same just to show though! My get-up and Go, left with this New Stay at Home Order!

    Thank You for Looking, any comments, questions, or information, are welcome and appreciated! :^D

    Much Thanks to Everyone that Wears A Mask Every Time that They Go Out In Public, and Makes the Right Choice Not To Travel and Gather, COVID19 should have been Gone, not Surging, if Everyone had made the Right Choice! :^(

      Good to see you Bill, stay well you're doing the safe thing & hopefully it will all pass soon. Love the gorgeous Sherman necklace & very pretty jewelry assortment. Take care & have a wonderful New Year! - Jenni

      SO GLAD you're safe and well out there, Bill!! :-) :-) :-) I think my favs of this group are the moon/star earrings set, are they silver or something else?

      Oh and YES I absolutely wear my mask whenever I havta go out anywhere, even though nobody 'official' ever really mandated such down here, <groan> still the count of cases and deaths and everything keeps going all the wrong way, every day... <sigh>
      All my best, Tim

      Although its definitely a starter necklace for a collector, the Sherman piece like all his work is defined by quality settings. The signature in the oval at the back tells us that it is from early stages in the company's formation. Later 40's and early 50's. This is a time also when the company's goal seemed to be to supply what was needed to a first time jewellery buyer or go all the way to a glam piece for special events. He catered to everyone, and used a lot of Aurora Borealis stones along with clear stones for some of these pieces. That was the trend at the time. Nice little collection to find and better to be safe in Covid times !~

      Hi Bill!
      Yes, things seem to be going backwards, shops are closed up again. ( not that I was going much). My family is a tight knit group, as we do gather. My Daughter and Son in Law are tested EVERYDAY at work. Kids school at home, so it’s safe for us. I couldn’t go long without being with my family! The kids haven’t even had a sniffle since last March, before that, my Daughter should of bought stock in Tylenol. I have a neighbor who has been locked up in her house for months! Says it’s her sanctuary! All alone, never has her daughters or grandchildren over. No way to live, you can take precautions; I worry about her. Ok, enough of the sad stuff.
      How exciting to find a Sherman necklace! And an older one at that! ( according to Phil, the oval cartouche is from early works). I do believe my favorite is the pave’ set bird in flight! BEAUTIFUL!

      Ha! Phil posted his comment right when I was typing mine! Good morning Phil!
      I see you are an early riser too! Mornings are the best..

      Thanks Eileen, seem to have had some indigestion since I was having these repetitive bad dreams which ruined my sleep, another bonus with age.

      Hi Lori, thank you! I was doing things around the House, yardwork and Decorating! :^D Two weeks ago I drove by the Flea Market at 8:30am Sunday and both sides were Packed with Sellers and Buyers, it was scary just looking at it. I've been Hearing of Friends and Relatives getting COVID19 now, and I for sure don't want it at Home!

      Thank you much Jenni, I've stopped by CW a few times, just quick checks, and the Photos that are here, I took right after I got these a month ago, just got lost in ho-hum. I Hope everyone has had a Safe Holiday Season, and that the Hope for 2021 and Stopping COVID19 arrives, for All! :^D

      Thank you Tim, I am too! :^D This Surge is getting too close Home, and effecting Loved Ones now! There are no Silver or Maker's marks on the Star and Moon Earrings, I think Surgical Steel, and White Metal, I just really liked them too, kind of 60-70's Look, or for the Renaissance Faire! :^D

      Thanks Phil, for all the Information, on my First Sherman Necklace Piece, when I saw the Mark, of course I thought of Your Sherman Collection, and it was fun to Find! :^D

      Hey Eileen I've missed the CW family, but after Halloween the infection rates starting going up, even though everyone was Warned Not to Go Out, and with that, I got real upset, and knowing that with Thanksgiving, it was only going to get worse, and the Straw, was Starting Bowling again, and then after just two weeks having to End it, was too much! :^( All of the Jewelry in this post I found the on same day, from four different Sellers, and really only had to pay-up for the Yellow Acrylic Stone Flower Brooch by GR (George Rech) Made In France, and turns out it was a very good buy! :^D I like the Bird too Eileen, kind of a problem I have Buying things! :^D

      I just feel the need! Please Wear A Mask, Don't Gather, and Don't Take COVID19 With You, By Not Traveling! Lets All Stop the Spread of this Virus! :^l

      Thanks for stopping by for a look, and for the love that you gave for what you saw, Maureen, Brian, dav2no1, Lisa, and Kevin, very nice of all of you! :^D

      Please Wear a Mask, Social Distance, and Wash Your Hands! :^)

      Yes, the more you find that you collect, the fun that happens is reward enough for me !~

      I love the swallow rhinestone brooch most! Great finds! Also green bakelite earrings, the 3 leaf brooch and sweet ballerina. Sadly I am under the "use it or lose it vacation policy". Seems weird they won't just pay me my due 15 days - no way! Yes, I'm careful and in fact got the latest stay at home order while I was on vacation at Anza Borrego desert. Very quiet at Borrego Springs and most restaurants closed! I could lose a little weight, it was not a big deal for me. XOXO

      You are so right.

      Thank You my #1 Mary, I have several Rhinestone Swallow Brooches like it, but all are a little different! I was thinking of You Mary, when I put the Green Bakelite Earrings there! I'm glad that You were able to get away, and Stay Safe too! xoxo :^D

      Thanks Karen, so much, it takes everyone's help to stop this Pandemic, but I hope that putting my little reminders up might keep people that see it, to grab that Mask on the way out! The Best 2021 to You! :^D

      Thanks mcheconi, for the support! :^D

      Thank You for looking, and for the love given, for what you saw, Lori, Kevin(kwqd), aura, my #1 Mary, Manikin, mcheconi, and bb2 was here, it's appreciated :^D

      Keep it going through 2021, wearing a Mask, and Social Distance until COVID19 is gone! :^)
