Oh my...I was so happy with these gloves that I forgot to write a review. They arrived quickly and as described, they fit perfectly...better than any gloves I've ever bought unless they were those stretchy things! Thanks for working with me so I could feel comfortable buying them!

T H E · S T O R Y ➣➣ I've always been a collector of little treasures and knickknacks. About two years ago I was given a bag of broken jewelry bits and began to recycle the pieces. Soon after I realized I could never possibly wear everything I was making :: so I began sharing them and participating in summer markets ➣ plus started this Etsy shop! Since then I've moved my hand made jewelry to a new shop (coming soon) and now use Eglantine Shines to share the vintage finds that are too beautiful to take apart!
T H E · G O A L ➣➣ to collect and share fun, beautiful, unique, and affordable vintage pieces with those who appreciate vintage and collectables.
T H E · S H O P ➣➣ every process of running this shop is done by me!
➊ The Hunt :: most pieces I find are by chance, stumbled across at various sales, fleas or markets and collected during my travels! They are just too beautiful to take apart!
➋ Studio :: sometimes the vintage pieces are in need of minor restoration/ repairs which I do in my studio in Chinatown.
➌ Digitizing :: I then take the pieces home to be photographed in my kitchen.
➍ Online :: The photos are edited - then the listings are created.
➎ Delivery :: all purchases are placed into a little fabric bag hand made by me from recycled vintage material, then packaged (with recycled packing materials) and sent safely and speedily with Canada Post.
H A N D · M A D E ➣➣ I've moved my handmade jewelry to a different shop which is coming soon! stay tuned!
O H · W H A T ' S · I N · A · N A M E? ➣➣ Eg·lan·tine means "sweet briar" (rose) :: I first heard the name used for the main character in one of my favorite childhood movies - Bedknobs & Broomsticks. There is a song in the movie about how she has the potential to shine if she wants to. :: I like to think that the modern Eglantine is one whose style is an eclectic mix of old and new - just like my shop! Most of my creations are one of a kind (unique as you!) which is why I'd love it if my pieces enable the wearer to tell a story and highlight their natural shine!
C U S T O M · O R D E R S ➣➣ Looking for something particular? Let me know and I'll see if I can find or if I have it in my collection! Also visit my other shop (coming soon) for handmade jewelry - contact me there for repairs or custom pieces.
S T O C K I S T S ➣➣ My hand made collection is currently available in Vancouver at the Window Community Art Shop (9 West Hastings) and Woo To See You Boutique (129-1208 Homer St)

Additional policies and FAQs
➣ Vintage jewelry findings, pieces or dead stock (never used vintage and findings) might show slight wear or patina which can only add to their charm! Great care is taken to ensure the items are described in the most detail possible.
➣ Part of the beauty of vintage metals is that they naturally change (patina) when worn or are exposed to air. They can easily be polished or cleaned to restore original shine.
