I also bought a few bag lots of brooches and pins.
I love the black enamel brooch and earrings set with the pink roses.
The hat pins and shoe clips are fun too !
These little scarf pins were all bagged together in a lot of 25 pins.
I think I will do alright by them : )
I also got a huge lot of buttons at an auction a few weekends ago. I was thrilled to find these Victorian Stag buttons . . . after sorting through the entire lot of +500 buttons I can happily say I have a set of ten deer buttons.
I love cameos ~ real or fake. I bought these at the tag sale and was fortunate to discover that the bracelet is real! It has eight tiny shell cameos, not plastic. Once it was all cleaned up (and no longer solid grey from dust and dirt) I could see the beautiful detail in each hand carved cameo. It is always nice to have the odd surprise! FYI ~ I learned via google that you should oil your shell cameo twice a year to keep it from drying out.
