Thrifting Finds - Vintage Necklaces



A few weeks ago there was an article in the local newspaper about some of the thrift stores in the Phoenix area.  Saturday morning, my sister and I headed out to visit the ones located in the Tempe/Chandler area.  With GPS to guide us, we  visited three of the stores.  One of the stores had just put out a great selection of vintage jewelry.  Both my sister and I love vintage jewelry.  Today I am sharing two of the pieces I purchased.  More photos will be shared next week. 

The first necklace is a vintage hollow silver bead necklace.  I think it is probably 70s.  I love it.  I brought it home and did a little cleaning.  (Not too much, I didn't want to lose that vintage look).  It even has two of the squash beads.  Not sure of the value but know it's more than the $4.00 I paid.

The bottom necklace is marked Hong Kong and some of the beads are plastic.  I love the color.  Reminds me of turquoise.  The cost of this beauty was $2.00. 

We found a number of other pieces of vintage jewelry, vintage sewing supplies, and a few other items.  To see more vintage items check out  Vintage Thingie Thursday click here.
