Would You Please Pass the Provenance?

That vintage buffalo locket in my profile pic pretty much sums up me and what I sell: vintage jewelry and jewelry for Buffalovers. It's also the only piece I've kept for myself since I started hunting for vintage jewelry to sell.

My love for vintage began in the sixth grade; I started collecting Beatles memorabilia just as the band was breaking up. Then there was the Art Deco phase, the ceramic flamingo phase, the rhinestone jewelry phase, the vintage advertising phase, and the Midcentury Modern phase. Every new (old) discovery triggers another phase!

Vintage and antique jewelry has been a passion through every collecting phase, but in the last few years it has become an obsession — especially lockets and especially the research!

I also love my dazzling city of Buffalo, NY and try to keep handmade jewelry for Buffalovers in stock. If you have a lead on a nice big stash of Buffalo transit tokens, we need to talk!

Thanks for stopping by, and be sure to check out my shop updates:

>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>> SALES TAX INFO <<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<
New York State buyers must pay sales tax. Please send me a message through Etsy prior to purchase so that I can make sure you are charged the correct sales tax for your region. (Residents of Erie County, NY are automatically charged the usual 8.75%—no need to contact me before purchasing.)
All jewelry items will arrive gift boxed and are mailed within 3-5 business days. If you need something sooner, please contact me before purchasing.

If you need expedited shipping (Priority Mail or faster), just send me a message before making your purchase so I can adjust shipping charges.

Please make sure the address shown on your Etsy and PayPal accounts are accurate. If your package is returned to me, you will be charged again to re-ship — and extra shipping charges are just a bummer :)

I do not accept international orders at this time.
