thrift store jewelry


I saw a post on Dime Store Thrift  http://dimestorethrift.blogspot.com/ declaring a new found (or old but resurfacing!)  love of clip on earrings found thrifting.  I love checking out the display cases full of sometimes weird often wonderful thrify jewelry!  Here is some of my treasured pieces. 



 The mama/baby duck necklace came with earrings and is an old Avon set. 
The cup, a newly found thrifted item, is being inspected to see how well the googled method of toothpaste on silver cleaning works.  Although it doesn't sparkle as well as silver polish, it passed inspection.  Cheerios are in bottom of cup to celebrate.  Also the inspector can now climb up on chair at counter height (will we all live through this stage is still in question).

I have been looking for that duck necklace! I had the same necklace when I was a baby. Is there any chance you would sell it? I know it's just an old Avon necklace but it would mean a lot to me. My email address is theresahas3@aol.com. Thanks!

I love that Duck family necklace by Avon! It's a very rare piece from 70s. Wish I had one!
