Announcement   Hi! Welcome to My Vintage Trinkets!

A little about me: My name is Theresa and I grew up involved in the auction business as my oldest brother was in the business. My parents took me to other auctions, yard sales and such. My mom sold Avon for 15 years and one of her best friends sold Sarah Coventry so I had plenty of jewelry and perfume growing up!
I always loved drawing, painting, and all crafts. My problem was my good attempts were few and far between!
My first marriage was a great learning experience! My second marriage produced my beautiful daughter.
Then after several short term relationships I met my soul mate!! He is an artist and antique dealer so it fit right in with my interests. He introduced me to antiques and I began to learn a lot about them. At one antique show I attended with him, I fell in love with a vintage brooch and purchased it. When I would wear it, my sweetie would say he could never lose me when I had it on because it would shine across the room! Well, that was it, I was hooked! Early on I lost a vintage earring I was wearing and it broke my heart! Then I lost one of the stones out of my first brooch. So I kind of started shying away from wearing my vintage jewelry but not from buying it and loving it!! Although I wear mostly 14k gold, rather plain jewelry most of the time, I have tons of vintage jewelry and smalls.
So, this is where you come in! Help me to let go of some of the treasures I find so I have room to buy more!

Thank you for visiting my shop and viewing my items! I also have two other Etsy shops now, check them out at http://www.Etsy.com/shop/TsVintiques and http://www.etsy.com/shop/FragranceVessels

I have tons of vintage jewelry. If you are searching for something, feel free to ask if I might have it. I also have vintage linens, vintage kitchen items, paper items, perfume bottles, buttons, etc. I have a lot of smalls, I usually don't deal with furniture or larger items. Let me know what you are looking for, I might just have it or may be able to find it for you!

Service and communication was great, slight problem with shipping taking a while from US to EU(not seller's fault, but Theresa was in constant contact and would highly recommend again. Girlfriend loves the necklace, well worth the wait!

About

How did I get here?

After becoming obsessed with vintage and antique items, I soon realized that I was going to have to sale some of what I had or I won't have room to purchase more!!
While I was still working a full time job as a Software Engineer, I spent all my vacation and leave time to go sale my items at antique shows.
Then in 2005 I was diagnosed with breast cancer. The cancer itself was nothing compared to the treatments I went through. The chemo effected me so much that I could no longer perform my job. In 2007 I became disabled due to this and many other diagnoses.
After becoming disabled, I wanted some way I could still sale some things and I had been selling on eBay for years but they had changed their fees and guidelines and I didn't like them. So, I found Etsy by researching some of my items.
Then...I was hooked on Etsy!!!

    I became addicted to vintage jewelry shortly after I purchased my first piece. I've always loved antiques and vintage items but my obsession took over when I dove into the jewelry! I love sharing it with others!
