For those who follow along on facebook and instagram, you probably already heard about the big vintage jewelry sale going on on my facebook page today.
My sister in law, Nellie has had this vintage jewelry box sitting around for a long time. It's loaded with costume jewelry from her great aunt, Letty.
Letty was born around 1906 and worked as a secretary for an electrical components company. Although she did fall in love at least once, she never married and she lived with her sister, Esther as spinsters. My father in law told me that they never threw anything away and he was able to rescue a big stack of 1940s and 50s newspapers, some of which were given to Pj and I to enjoy.
Nell texted me a few weeks ago to ask if I could help her sell these things. She said she'll never wear them and would love to see them go to someone who enjoys them. We had a lot of fun sorting through it all, looking at maker's marks and joking over this brooch that looks like the squid-like robots from The Matrix.
This week, you can shop Aunt Letty's jewelry box on facebook!
