I love getting bargains, and most weeks I get several that I can use in my booths, or sell on Etsy. This past week, I almost didn’t go to the sales because of a storm that came through, but decided to get up anyway. Right before the storm came through, I stopped at a sale in a part of town I normally don’t go to. I was already in the neighborhood, and decided to go to this particular address because scrapbooking supplies were advertised.
I usually look for Vintage jewelry that I can sell on Etsy and in my booths. This young lady had several pieces on a table in zip lock bags for 25 cents each. I thought the one in the pictures below was pretty, and picked it up along with several others.
After I got home, I got out my jewelry loupe to take a closer look-and what do you know-this one was marked 14k from Israel! I took it to the jewelry store along with some other pieces to verify it and see how much it is worth, and the jeweler said that based on the price of gold, it was worth $150 just for the gold! Not only that, the pearls are real! So….guess what I am going to do? Keep it! LOL
You never know what you’ll find! Please tell me about your bargains!
Thanks for stopping by!
