Default April thrift finds "pic heavy"

Here's all the stuff I found this month while out thrift shopping. Few pieces of gold...earrings, necklace, tie tac...and lots of silver. I'm going to post just once a month for those if you who are interested. Have a great day everyone! Oh the eye shape silver thing is an old Tatting tool that was very popular for making doilies and such...can't believe this particular place missed it..$1

I have a friend that i take shopping on occasion. Thrift stores and goodwill stores are his favorite places to shop. Even if we dont buy anything we have a good day. I Find some nice items at good prices but i have never seen any jewelry that i thought was Pm. The local thrift shops check their stuff real carefully.

But your finds amaze me and i look forward to seeing what you find.

MY best find was a Mont Blonc ballpoint pin for less than two bucks. I sold it for a nice crisp 100 dollar bill and could have gotten much more.

Thank you , I guess my biggest thrill of this batch was the bow necklace. Athough not marked, when looked at closely you can see the grey seed pearls and where a couple of spots were lead soldered together. It was only 2.50 and i had it repaired and lenghtened with some extra chain I had for $25. I found one on the net ( not like that means anything) for $300 +. But that one had a diamond in the center where I just put the pearl in there. I think the white gives a nice contrast. Hope you are having a good day. Goodwill sometimes have jewelry jars. I took a chance on one last year and was rewarded with a 14kt. gold and emerald bracelet, but sometimes they are a bit too pricey for what you "might" get....

No not earrings, I think just vintage charms. They are not gold but still cool. I really like the knife.
