vintage art nouvau style brooch

mother of pearl earrings

I got this lovely art nouveau style vintage brooch in this weird charity shop, which is almost never open. They had some lovely brooches in the window though, and very cheap, so I made sure to go in their super narrow opening hours. They did haver three lovely old ladies manning the tills at the same time, so they’re obviously not lacking in volunteers!

100% thrifted:
top, shoes and brooch – charity shops
skirt – people tree
mother of pearl earrings – gift

    Your jewelry today is just lovely. The brooch is a very pretty design and the mother of pearl is probably extra gorgeous in the sunlight I'll bet!

    Nice finds! Whenever I visit Edinburgh I try to get around as many charity shops as possible. There's always some good finds, which is probably a reflection of how affluent some of its residents are.

    The broach is lovely, glad you managed to snag it.

    I love those little old ladies who work in thrift stores. Maybe i'll be one someday.

    Chic on the Cheap
