Leaves and Fall
I used to thrift shop as a teenager and bought costume jewelry for cheap. Not as many people collected this stuff back then. Plus the older women that were getting rid of their jewelry had been young during the 20s-40s. If I could go back I would not be so lazy and work harder for money to get more of these beauties. It wasn't long before lots of people were searching for vintage jewelry and the prices shot up. Oh, to find 1930's brooches for 25 cents again!
What does vintage jewelry have to do with sewing? If you haven't noticed, nearly everything I make is out of solid colors or subtle prints --all the better to load the vintage jewelry on!
