I sorted through my Thomas L Mott enamel travel souvenir charms and have a few duplicates so I’m offering them in my Charmcrazey shop. They are all vintage and made of sterling silver and enamel.
Hello readers, I’ve risen from the dead and have started writing on my blog again. The big bunch of jewelry I bought last night inspired me to take a picture of it all and write a blog post about it.
Yesterday I took a day off from work and drove over to Indian Rocks Beach on the Gulf Coast of Florida. I went to visit my friend Karen from my charm group, who is visiting from New Hampshire. We went to the flea market in Seminole and I found vintage jewelry treasures.
I met with my good friend Diane from the coin shop last night and bought tons of charms to sell. I’ll be listing them over the next few days in my CharmCrazey Vintage Charms & Jewelry eBay shop . Wow this is fun. It’s like Christmas all over again. Oh and see that wide band […]
I found lots of great vintage jewelry – fine and costume – at Renninger’s Antique Market in Mount Dora Florida yesterday. I’ll be featuring it in my eBay shop. Check out my pretty finds……
I’ve been collecting vintage charms and creating bracelets, as well as selling them for a while now, and lately I’ve started to collect vintage costume jewelry lately. Pins and brooches in particular. I love the figural shaped pins and pins with colored stones the most I think.
I get this question from customers from time to time and the answer is “from various sources”. I live in central Florida and the antiquing prospects here aren’t as robust as in the midwest or northeast United States. It’s just not easy to find nice charms at the antique fairs in my area.
I’ve thrown my hat into the ring and decided to participate in Jeanette Cate’s 30 day blog challenge starting June 1 (today). I will be writing a short blog post every day this month. The objective is to cultivate my writing skills, build blog traffic, focus deeper into my vintage jewelry niche, and build on-line relationships.
These beautiful and brightly colored shield charms are fun to collect and they’re on sale for 20% off through the end of April in my Charmcraze-y ebay store. One can make a collection from any number of themes, from places you’ve visited to different flowers of the world.
Just thought I’d post a photo of a vintage charm bracelet I just received in the mail. I bought it on ebay. It’s mostly sterling silver, and all enamels, and there are several Thomas L. Mott charms.
It’s a new marketing strategy I’m rolling out. These are amazing little devices that snap shut pretty securely when used to attach a charm to a charm bracelet. I haven’t lost a charm yet and I’ve been using them for a while now. And they are much less expensive than soldering by a jeweler. It’s […]
This is fitzcharming. He’s my new logo graphic and I’ll be working on changing out all my internet and printed material in the next few days and weeks. Don’t you just LOVE him? He comes in many different poses so I believe he will be very versatile in my business. He’s sans charm bracelets at […]
I’m so pleased to now offer for sale in my ebay store the incredible Snapeez Locking Jump Rings. I wrote about these magic rings in a previous post and have since had many requests for them. So I contacted the distributor and I am now an authorized reseller of these charm bracelet “must haves”. No […]
This morning I started thinking about goals for 2009, and decided that getting my jewelry inventory listed for sale would be a good start. So I dumped it all out & started to sort. But before I did I took this photo, which is about half of the box. So now I have a list […]
Today I officially gave my resignation notice at Ernst & Young, the accounting firm where I’ve worked for the past 12 years. I’m scared to death but I’m determined to make a life for myself as an entrepreneur. This was one of the hardest decisions I’ve ever made and very emotional for me. I’ll be […]
