I absolutely adore this item. It was even better in person than it looked in the pictures!! Seller is lovely - patient and personable. She even provided some tips on how I could display the item as a fall decoration (LOVE THAT). Item was wrapped VERY well and shipped quickly. Really pleasant experience.

Romantic hmmmmmmm these choker length faux pearls definitely fall into this category. I'd say Marilyn had it wrong - pearls are a girl's best friend!
Short cotton gloves were part of the "uniform" worn by the "1950's woman". No outfit was complete without gloves.
American Bandstand was a fun dance show that all the teens watched anxiously to keep up on the latest dance moves AND fashions. This emerald green plastic flower brooch is a showy typical 1960's piece that the kids coveted.

About

Galvanic - energetic, electric, supercharged....... Flea - flea market, small, diminutive.......

The Galvanic Flea = your muse for boundless creativity, whimsical spirit, fantastic dreams and a future of treasure hunting and building and living a vintage, romantic lifestyle. Whether it be through personal fashion and style or through your home's decor, you can find the curios and brocante you need here.

BarbaraDoone has been selling on Etsy for 8 years and curated and created her own antiques booths at two different locations in the GTA for over 5 years. The booths offered exactly what you find here online at the Galvanic Flea in addition to larger pieces of mid century modern and Art Deco furniture and a much larger selection of vintage and antique clothing and accessories. In addition, she shared her vintage clothing and linens at the Toronto Vintage Textiles and Clothing Show for several seasons. She dearly misses her opportunities to interact with her clientele at these venues but still revels in her connections with her new and repeat customers here on Etsy.

BarbaraDoone also reuses and repurposes vintage and heirloom items into jewelry and home decor items. These creations are offered through her Etsy sister shoppe www.evidenceoflove.etsy.com . Antique button bracelets, draped charm necklaces, mismatched and asymmetrical earrings, refashioned lamp shades in the shabby chic style, recreated purses, embellished footwear and more reside in the L'Amour de Preuve shoppe.

BarbaraDoone is available to discuss with you your vision for the lifestyle and decor you wish to create. If there are items you are looking for and don't see in the shoppe let her know, she may have them on hand and not yet posted or know exactly where to find them for you.

Wishing you all a romantic vintage lifestyle and personal joy.
