About

WELCOME! Thank you for visiting our etsy shop.

Eyecatchers Vintage Costume Jewelry is a small, family owned business operated by a husband and wife team, Ellen and Michael McNeill. We are based in the gorgeous mountains of Western North Carolina, USA and have lived here for over 17 years. We moved to WNC from Tampa, Florida and haven’t regretted our decision for a moment.

We have three VINTAGE COSTUME JEWELRY shops in the etsy marketplace – Eyecatchers Boutique (opened in 2010), Eyecatchers Luxuries (2011) and Eyecatchers Attic (2012). We have one more shop scheduled to open on 12/01/2016, Eyecatchers Treasures. Each shop has its own unique selections with no listings duplicated from one shop to another.

WELCOME! Thank you for visiting our etsy shop.

Eyecatchers Vintage Costume Jewelry is a small, family owned business operated by a husband and wife team, Ellen and Michael McNeill. We are based in the gorgeous mountains of Western North Carolina, USA and have lived here for over 17 years. We moved to WNC from Tampa, Florida and haven’t regretted our decision for a moment.

We have one more shop scheduled to open on 12/01/2016, Eyecatchers Treasures. Each shop has its own unique selections with no listings duplicated from one shop to another.

We just love running our etsy Eyecatchers shops. They provide an opportunity for us to have ONLINE businesses which was only a dream six years ago. One of the best parts of owning etsy shops is that we get to interact one-to-one with our visitors, customers and other shop owners. We enjoy the fact that etsy provides more of a “social selling marketplace” than others you find ONLINE. And the etsy support staff for shop owners is super professional and very knowledgeable when it comes to all things etsy.

The etsy marketplace also has dozens of “teams” of shop owners with similar interests that communicate with each other through “discussions”. We haven’t yet explored joining any teams but have made it a goal to accomplish in 2016.

We've shipped some exquisite pieces of VINTAGE COSTUME JEWELRY to over 781 ladies in the United States and all over the world. Some of our customers reside in France, Italy, Russia, China, Sweden, Australia, Saudi Arabia, New Zealand, Israel, Spain, Denmark, Taiwan, Norway, Lithuania, Turkey, Germany, Ireland, Finland, India, Singapore, Greece, The Netherlands and Canada. We frequently have to use the etsy “translate” feature to communicate with some of our international customers.

Many of our customers tell us that have found a piece they owned years that was broken or lost. Some of our customers have even shared their heartwarming stories with us about why they're buying a specific piece of jewelry.

One of our favorite stories was shared by a young lady, Carole C. from Memphis, TN. Carole’s mom had lost an heirloom costume jewelry cameo brooch that was given to her by a special aunt. The cameo fell out into the snow when they were attending a funeral years before. Carole said they looked everywhere in the snow for the cameo but they were unable to find it.

Carole was absolutely thrilled when she found the exact cameo brooch in our EyecatchersLuxuries.etsy.com shop. She was able to buy it as a surprise gift for her mom. Can you just imagine how mom and daughter felt when the gift was given?

Thanks so much for reading a little bit about us. We hope you enjoy rummaging through our shops.
