When I say that nearly my entire jewelry collection is vintage, I mean it. Years upon years of visits to flea markets, thrift stores and consignment shops (plus a few digs through my Nana’s jewelry box) have resulted in quite the collection that I am consequently quite proud of! There is literally no better feeling than getting a compliment while wearing a one of a kind piece that they are not mass producing at Forever21 (love you, though, F21). But accumulating a collection like mine takes, frankly, a lot of time, effort, and passion. So if you’re looking to quickly add some snazzy vintage pieces to your wardrobe, my way is not the way to go. But I have a solution. Obviously.
Sweet & Spark is an online curated vintage jewelry shop founded by Jillian Bremer. Her adorable website, which mainly sells gold jewelry from the 1940’s – 1990’s, is just under a year old. Jillian enlisted the help of her father, Howard, to work as Sweet & Spark’s head buyer (too cute). Howard scours flea markets, yard sales, and antique shops up & down the east coast, finding the best jewels for the site. They offer free shipping & the pricing is reasonable.
I took a peek around Sweet & Spark and picked out some of my favorite one of a kind pieces. Check them out:
70’s chunky classic id bracelet // 80’s edgy statement link earrings // 80’s cream shield bar flat link necklace
80’s open cream & gold bar bib necklace // 70’s etched cuff // 80’s bold striped circle earrings
So cute, right? Well, now for the fun part. Sweet & Spark, in conjunction with Philly Blog Love, is hosting a trunk show in Rittenhouse this weekend! I can’t wait to see all of the pretty jewelry in person – and get 10% off my purchase!
The trunk show is open to the public, so if you’d like to join us, you can RSVP here. I hope to see some of you there! Oh yeah, and Sweet & Spark, you had me at “gold.” xx
