I haven’t been posting as much, because as some of you know life gets in the way of blogging. However- I am still here and mucking about with my hands in old stuff and selling said old junk on eBay. Finding new old things to love and hoard along the way.
Recently I have found myself rather taken by vintage charms and charms bracelets. I remember when I was a young girl my Mother had what I thought was the most incredible charm bracelet. It was a heavy duty double link charm bracelet covered in an array of sterling and enamel state charms. One for each state my father took her in his super sexy converted and carpeted gold Dodge van. There were at least 45 charms on her bracelet because he took her to over 40 states and then some Canadian territories as well. It seemed like such a sweet and romantic way to commemorate that long 18 month road trip in 1974-1975.
I don’t know what ever happened to my Mom’s charm bracelet, but I know find myself wanting to collect charms and create charm bracelets to commemorate my life and happy moments. I have also started to add to my inventory on eBay a selection of vintage charms. To showcase some of these, my husband designed a website for me called Vintage Charm Collector. There I have been posting vintage charms and some videos to go with them. I hope you will stop by the new site and tell me what you think.
