I fell in love with this bracelet:
I had never bought vintage jewelry before but she posted several pictures of the bracelet and I found out that it was a Monet piece and started searching for it. One was available at an online vintage jewelry store for $300 but I was sure that I could do better than that. Three weeks later I owned the bracelet, having purchased it from eBay for $6:49 including shipping and had found a new addiction!
I now have a small obsession with buying vintage jewelry on eBay. Sometimes I know what I want and will check in once a week or so to see if one is available and sometimes I just find something through random good luck.
Here are a few items from current eBay auctions:
Finding (and winning) just the right item is a very different experience than buying something new. Try it, you too may discover that you have a vintage jewelry addiction!
