I have a habit of "trading" up vintage pieces, these two brass necklaces are perfect examples of this. I had been holding on to the right 1940s brass necklace because of it's age, even though when I went to wear it it never felt like me so I sold it. Months later for almost the exact same price I purchased the left 1940's brass necklace. Even though they are pretty much the same idea the new to me one has the quirky element of the strawberries while still retaining the elegance of a brass piece. I am really loving the patina my new necklace has the other one was just too shiny for me I guess...
I will admit I have slipped and a 1970's tooled leather purse may have also came home with me this month. Anybody else try to stay within a desired style when shopping for vintage?
