Hi my name is Kendra, and I’m addicted to accessories………..
I adore necklaces, earrings, bracelets, and any other type of accessory I can get my hands on. Accessories complete an outfit the same way a cherry completes a sundae! Let’s pretend you’re wearing flip-fops, jeans, and a black ribbed tank-top, what I would call a pretty boring and casual outfit. BUT if you throw on some hoops, a fun necklace, and maybe a little fabric poppy in your hair you’re good to go! Still comfortable but now you’re comfortable AND stylish!
No need to break the bank when shopping for accessories. If you have a little patience and don’t mid a bit of digging you can find some really great pieces at garage sales and thrift stores. Below are some of my recent finds. None of the items below were more than $3.00….no joke!
Love the feminine simplicity
The lady that previously owned this necklace was an accessory addict as well (see there are others out there). She had a whole room in her home that was full of jewelry. I think she would be happy to know that some of her little gems were passed along to another jeweler lover. I promise to take good care of them.
This piece still had its original $35.00 price tag attached when I found it at Goodwill. Don’t you love when that happens? Makes you feel even better about the few bucks you spent. It had a strand that was missing a few beads so I just snipped the broken strand off and it’s good as new.
Ahh the picture does not do this estate sale necklace justice. It’s beautiful! The mass caught my eye but I fell for it when I took a closer look. It has tiny chains and metallic beads woven throughout and the claps is stunning! I’ll need to wear my hair up when I wear this beauty.
I wore this a lot this summer. It looks great with my brown scoop neck. :o) I’m real bad about finding a handful of outfits I like and repeating them over and over again until I get tired of them. I’ll call them my uniforms. Mom if you’re reading this you know exactly what I’m talking about. It’s not that I’m lacking in the clothing department. Nope it’s out of pure laziness! This little Goodwill find was a nice addition to one of my summer uniforms. ;o)
This poor thing was all in knots when I found it. It was priced super cheap at Goodwill. I saw the potential so I snatched it up and spent a little time untangling it while I was watching T.V. one evening. I told you accessory addict over here! I’ll even try to save pieces that should be put to rest. Glad I gave this one a second chance!
I stopped in my tacks when I saw this at Goodwill! It’s hand sewn and seems to be vintage but I could be wrong. I have big plans for this little guy. I want to sew lace strands to the end and add a big lacey flower on the side (clapping hands in excitement).
It’s fun, it’s chunky, and yes a little tarnished but I love that about it! Another gem from the departed jewelry addict. You know what? She deserves a name. Let’s call her Betty. I’m really not trying to be disrespectful but actually the completely opposite. I learned a lot while at Betty’s estate sale and you’ll be hearing about her again when I share just what she taught me.
*Ladies please keep discarding your awesome jewelry! Just make sure that you ONLY get rid of it while your in Dallas,Texas so I have a fair chance of finding it! You can do that for me…..right?*
