About Us
All That Glitters was born in 1989, when my personal collections became so large that selling was the next logical step. I'm fascinated with all things from the past.

Our home base is in the Chicago area. In addition to my experience of over 30 years selling and buying, I've taken many professional level classes from GIA and other sources.

We focus on fine and costume jewelry and ladies accessories from the past. We have it all-- ornate Victorian. stark Art Deco, clever Mid-Century, and Modernist styles. I'm continually shopping for treasures anywhere and everywhere, searching for outstanding and unique items to offer to you at the most reasonable price possible.

For 23 years we've had a shop in the Heritage Trail Antique Mall in Wilmette, Illinois (just north of Chicago), the premier group shop in the Chicago area. We were actively recruited and participated in the best shows in the Chicago area...but the top shows have unfortunately moved to the East and West Coasts.

If you are looking for a special something, please get in touch via email. Our inventory is extensive.
