Wonderful Find-Vintage Trinket Boxes- Lots of em



So I'm at this garage sale today. I'm not finding much, but I linger, to carefully search all the shelves and tables. Just as I was about to give up finding anything interesting I spy a box under a table. As I'm inspecting the contents, I hear the magic words. "If you take them all I'll, I'll sell them for $??." Let's just say it was a good deal, and it didn't take me long to accept. I'm learning to love buying in quantity. I really wasn't able to check out my treasure till I got home and I am not disappointed.

I've separated them into groups, I'll call this group (above) the color group

This will be the Victorian group

Below we have our enamel group. I don't know if this is real enamel, but I'm gonna call it the enamel group anyway. ;)

Most of the boxes are simply marked "Japan". I'm told this dates them to the mid 50's or earlier.

This is the Rose group

I don't think there are any solid silver ones, just silver and gold tone. And one copper tone seen below.

Above the heart group, and below the misc group.
Included is also an old powder box.

Wow thats 40 !!!!

I'm going to be pricing them between $14.99 to $3.00 each
Feel free to inquire, I'll be pricing and taking them to my booths soon.
Just email me by click the email link under the pic of me sleeping on the side bar.

Yowza! Talk about an impact grouping!!! I love piles...these kind of piles...not the other type! You could do something really cool with these for Christmas since you think so well outside the box...jewel box that is.
You are more than welcome to take whatever you need from my W&T's post....just promise me you won't mistake me for a pumpkin on a dark night!
