About Us
Welcome! I hope you enjoy browsing my shop, I strive to find marvelous vintage jewelry and collectibles for you at very reasonable prices.

I appreciate your business, and I am committed to your satisfaction. The sale is not final until you have examined your purchase. Please let me know within three days if you wish to return an item, hassle free!

When I was a little girl my beloved grandmother played dress up with me and let me wear her sparkly costume jewelry, and I've been hooked ever since. I still feel her love and the fun we had wash over me when I come across a lovely vintage piece. I am always searching for great vintage items, and am fascinated by the charm and beauty, as well as the stories behind them. With many military family members and friends, I am especially moved by sweetheart pieces from wartime, and the connections these pieces forge with those serving our great nation today. I love hearing your stories and join you in supporting loved ones in the service. I always welcome your emails and offer up a prayer for each one.

Thank you so much to all my marvelous patrons, it is such a pleasure to do business with you! I will do my best to insure you are well pleased with your purchase, and hope you will become a repeat customer. Please check back often, you never know what's around the next corner...

--Dear Mitsi,
The necklace and earrings have arrived and are just as you presented them. I am sending them to my best friend who lives in Europe for her 70th birthday. She is very particular and has excellent taste and I spent quite a while on the Internet searching for this gift. I showed the site to several people and they all agreed that the set is beautiful. It looks very Georg Jensen-esque.
Thank you for your effort and great packaging.

--I purchased the champagne glass sterling silver Army Air Corps
(sweetheart) necklace and wanted to say it is lovely. My father was a pilot in the Air Corps in WWII. I have hunted for something as a memorial for his service and most of what I saw was USAF. So this was a gem to me. So thank you for the unique memento. You service was perfect. Thank you.

--The wonderful old concho clip on earrings arrived today and I
love them! What lovely stones! To have retained their deep blue
color with the reddish-brown matrix for so many years makes me
think the turquoise is Bisbee. Who knows? But I so know that I
will be wearing them a lot! Thank you very much, Mitsi, for my
new treasure! Kind regards from your happy customer, PB, WS
