Finds at thrift stores


#1

Hi All, I have scored a few times at thrift stores and a rummage
sale. My boyfriend came home with an 18k gold chain he got for a
dollar at a thrift store for me. I bought a 14k gold and jade pin
for my mom at a store in the islands. It was in a dusty case and
might have been in there for years. There was no price tag, so I
asked the manager how much? He looked at it and said the stones
looked real so how about $15? The last good find was at a church
rummage sale where I bought a box of costume jewelry, and there were
a couple of gold items and sterling jewelry in it.

I always check the jewelry cases at the secondhand stores, you never
know…

I found a heavy silver bracelet marked with Denmark and K bent. With
a little research I found that my $25 purchase had value in the
hundreds. Love second hand stores!

Judy in Kansas, where it is too pleasant for late August. Cringing
to think what winter might bring.

Oops! Make that makers mark “Bent K”. He was a well known Danish
silversmith.
