I know what I said!!! So please don’t remind me! I have a GOOD excuse…
“What had happened was…”
So I had a dentist appointment today, but they didn’t do a cleaning… it was more of a consultation. Since I had more time than anticipated I decided to walk around the beautiful area. The dentist is located off Oaklawn (Gay Dallas) and across the street is a vintage store. Inspired by some of my favorite YouTubers, FeliciaJuly and SammyDavisVintage, I decided to check the store out.
I really didn’t expect to buy anything. All I wanted to do was look around… well, come to find out, the store is currently having a liquidation sale. If there is any kind of sale I like it’s DEFINTALY of the liquidation caliber. Everything in the store was marked at 50% off! The reason for the sale was the owner of the shop recently passed away and his sister wanted to see how much she could sale this next week or two to help decide whether she was going to continue with the shop or close it down.
Everything was 50% but it was more like… Take what you want and tell us how much you want to pay for it. Only in Texas.
I ended up buying a number of things and plan on going back tomorrow. I have been dying to start collecting vintage jewelry, and today was the best day, if any. I took home a number of brooches, a couple of necklaces, and a cute 1940’s red hounds tooth jacket!
In regular retail for the store I spent $186. I should have paid $93 plus tax. However I took EVERYTHING home for $65. This was a total savings of 67%. I normally like to stay in the 75% realm when it comes to liquidation sales, but this was my first go around with vintage jewelry.
Since I am no connoisseur when it comes to vintage jewelry I would love help in identify the years of any of the pieces I show below.
Tell me what you guys think about everything too!
