About The Big O

Our Service Pledge
**TEMPORARY UPDATE: During the pandemic I am going to the post office once a week. My next mailing day is scheduled for Friday, June 5th. If your purchase is time-sensitive, such as a gift, please let me know and I will do my best to accommodate you. Thank you!**

I'm usually able to acknowledge orders and respond to inquiries within 24 hours. If there is damage beyond the minor wear and tear found in vintage and antique items that isn’t noted in the listing or seen in the photographs, or if I have made a material mistake in describing the item, I'll cheerfully refund the purchase price of the item as well as the shipping costs both ways. I want you to be happy with your purchase, and promise to give you the info I would want if I were purchasing it for myself. Please make sure to view all the photographs and take note of measurements before purchasing. Many items are much smaller than their greatly magnified photos.
About Us
My shop mostly features sterling silver charms, especially 1940s and Victorian puffy heart charms. After that, I gravitate towards the Scandinavian silversmiths for their charms and beyond. Then there’s anything else that catches my eye…

I have a lot of charms that aren’t in my shop, so if you don't find what you're looking for, or if you are looking for a particular name or initials on a puffy heart, please ask ~ I may have it!

I personally collect dog and dog-related charms and zodiac charms of all the signs. I frequently have some wonderful zodiacs for sale.
