What's New in the Resparkable Vintage Etsy Shop
Just a quick recap of the things that were listed in the Resparkable Vintage shop over the last week or two.
First, the only vintage handbag I’ve listed so far is from my FAVORITE, Enid Collins. Her bags are easy to spot from a mile away. They are definitely works of art that make a statement. I’ve been a admirer and collector for many, many years. And because up until recently, I lived in Texas my whole life, I’ve come across a lot of them at all the estate sales I would go to regularly. This particular bag is titled “cable car” and is from 1964. It’s a little worn, because hey! it’s over 50 years old. My pricing reflects that it isn’t in perfect condition. But believe me~ it’s a stunner. And the small things that have happened to it over the years (some missing sequins, and small stones) are in places that are barely noticeable. AND, if you’re a little crafty, you could repair it very easily. I chose to sell these Enid Collins handbags in the original form I find them in. I clean them, but beyond that, I leave it up to the next keeper of this great piece of Texas fashion history.
Next, I’ve listed two pair of vintage earrings. Both heart shaped, and both full of charm and sparkle.
I also have a few vintage brooches that were recently listed. Brooches have made a big comeback, and they aren’t just for scarves anymore! If you google “how to wear a brooch” you’ll find lots of great ideas, if you need any.
The other 4 listings are handmade items I’ve made using vintage jewelry. Some people call this “repurposing”, others call it “upcycling”. There are all sorts of terms people use, so I went ahead and made up my own word for it: RESPARKLING. It’s a combination of the “remarkable” and “sparkle”.
Head over to the shop to see more about each of these. My PLAN is to do a weekly, or every-other-weekly, post here to let you know what’s new. I’m trying to list things on a near daily basis, so check over there as often as you want, and you should be seeing lots of new merchandise.
