A couple of weeks ago I was at a garage sale (big surprise) and picked up a bag of mixed new and vintage costume jewelry that was marked $5.00. I'm not a big fan of buy-it-in-a-lot stuff generally as I know I'll get stuck with junk (dare I say, sheer trash?) that I don't want. But this time I saw this glorious pastel floral enamel brooch beckoning from inside its clear poly prison, and all bets were off :
|It's not in pristine condition, but I still love it.|
I went hunting for a set online today and, while I didn't find one in my [dirt cheap] price range, I did find this amazing necklace which I had to share here, from Etsy shop TheClassicJewelryBox.
But back to Sarah Coventry. The other set I adore, and am waiting to pounce on at some yard sale some day, is "Candyland":
|Such happy colors!|
It's plain to see I gravitate toward the figural and whimsical pieces in the SC line, but don't be fooled; there are scads of elegant, classic pieces as well. So start checking for those designer marks!
"SC", "SARAH COV" and "COVENTRY" are all valid Sarah Coventry designations.
P.S. Hoping you'll visit my new facebook page!
