Our new Fall Merchandise is now in! A unique & timeless collection of beautiful perfume bottles, hourglasses, leather journals and yes, even pheasants. In addition of course is a stunning array of new jewelry crafted just for the season - come see for yourself!
Rings like this have been used throughout history to carry perfume, locks of hair, devotional relics, messages and other keepsakes, so they have also been known by other names. Artists would paint tiny portraits of loved ones, to be carried in what was called a “locket ring,” which was popular during the Renaissance. This ring is from the art nouveau period and is handmade in sterling silver.

This eclectic charm bracelet is a delightful reminder of exactly why we love vintage! Pairing a classic but bygone fashion with sentiments unknown but easily imagined, it’s truly a unique and treasured keepsake.
Favorite charms include a typewriter and telephone with moveable elements, and a mustard seed engraved with the prayer, “If ye have faith as a grain of mustard seed nothing shall be impossible.”
Come see this and other fabulous and unusual vintage pieces in our ever-changing collection.
