Costume jewelry… something else I love

While I’m down with the flu here I will let you take a peak at something else I love. Here are some of my vintage brooches dating from the thirties, forties and fifties. I bought my first one on Ebay while looking at new stuff to buy for a gift. Once you buy one you’re hooked. Price can range between as little las 1 dollar (plus shipping) to whatever you’re willing to pay, but for 10-20 dollars you can buy some really neat things! Shipping to Spain with Global Priority is usually less than 10 dollars.
