My grandparents are always going to yard sales, antique sales & estate sales in Wisconsin where they live, so I thought to myself one day... there could be some really cool jewelry and vintage stuff that people wouldn't appreciate at these sales. In NYC anything vintage is always super expensive and really picked over, it's hard to find really unique stuff without shelling our major money.
So every time my grandparents are going to a sale I ask them to pickup any boxes of jewelry they can find. These usually are about $5 for an entire box of 'treasure'. They picked up 3 boxes over the past few months and I found some awesome and amazing brooches aka pins! I plan to wear these clustered on a blazer, pin on a bag or scarf. So many ways to get creative with these lil beauties!
