GleamingKist Distinctive Vintage Accessories For You & Your Home

Welcome to the GleamingKist etsy shop. At Gleaming Kist I aim to offer a fine selection of distinctive vintage accessories for you & your home. My vintage finds including vintage jewellery, items are all sourced locally here in Scotland.

Why Gleaming Kist?
Kist: Is an old Scots word for a box or coffer. I hope this GleamingKist will be filled with interesting vintage items and that as you browse you will find something to cherish.

Why Vintage?
Vintage offers so much, an opportunity to buy unusual and attractive pieces with character and a chance to sustainably reuse existing resources. The environmental advantage of vintage pieces is that they already exist; no new carbon or environmental footprint is expended in producing them. Purchasing vintage allows us to appreciate the design and aesthetic of the past. It also avoids these wonderful items being forgotten.
Each piece brings its own unique history of use whether it has been cherished or forgotten. So next time you’re looking for a gift or a little treat for yourself why not give the sassy, sustainable vintage option a go.

What Vintage?
I select items that I personally like and I hope others might too. Vintage accessories often include handbags and purses from the past and the period contents that go with them e.g. powder compacts, lipstick cases and mirrors.
Men aren’t forgotten either as there is a wonderful range of men’s shirt & suit accessories, cufflinks and tie clips to be found from earlier in the 20th Century.
It’s also great to find some fantastic 20th Century costume vintage jewellery and to give it a chance to shine again. Some of my favourites are the art deco pieces but there are wonderful 1950s costume brooches that also deserve their chance to sparkle on display once more.
In Scotland there’s also a great array of Scottish celtic inspired vintage jewellery pieces to be rediscovered, they range from the classic to the kitsch.
I also like to include a sprinkling of vintage home pieces and vintage collectibles that can add period flair to home décor or have interest for collectors.
