After talking about the little chandelier in the last post, I thought it might be time to go visit Renninger's again. We usually go only to the antique market side. The flea market area has t-shirts, leather, that kind of stuff so we usually skip it. This time we even checked out that side.
And I'm happy we did. Two of the necklaces came from a nice lady over there, the multi-strand black and the swirl silver/gold ones. They are both the oldest as well, from the 1930's. The green bead one and the crystal one are from the late 40's to early 50's. I do remember my mom having some necklaces that were similar to those two.
This is kind of a new interest to me in the last year. I know nothing about older or vintage pieces, just what I like when I see it. And it is often less expensive than buying something newly made. But they have some extra appeal. Previously I sometimes looked for necklaces to take apart, but these will stay in one piece.
