collecting the 40's
brass: I only own one necklace but I have a great desire to own more. I can't resist the weight and charm of these necklaces. They are expensive online so I must hope for good thrift luck in finding more.
matching pins: 1940's jewelry was full of rhinestones, collar clips and scatter pins. I passed on a pair of scatter pins recently and now I wish I hadn't. I love the idea of things being in pairs and hope to not pass up more sets in the future.
"jade" green: The infamous "jadeite" green color was widely popular in the 40's as well as "delphite" blue both these colors are very nostalgic and collectable. It is hard to believe this painted glass piece is 70 years old!
corde: Was a very popular fabric used in the 1940's these pieces have held very well. I have always passed on them since they are usually quite small, this wallet however had the cutest brass clip and was really unique. It is sadly too small for my modern need but I hope to find a good use for it soon.
Do others hope to find items from a certain decade?
