Find Of The Month: Edwardian 10K Seed Pearl Bar Pin

I found so many fabulous things in June that it was very hard to come up with just one Find of the Month. But this pretty little bar pin wins because: 1. I paid only 20 cents for it at a garage sale. Technically, I bought 10 things (including some cool beads, a Mickey Mouse watch and a mod lucite Trifari neckace) for $1, but I felt so happy about my finds that I gave the lady two bucks. I asked if she was sure, and she said it was her aunt’s stuff.

Sometimes I look at the pin and feel like I’ve robbed the lady of a family heirloom. That maybe I should go back and tell her about the significance of the pin (it’s old and gold) and return it to her. But I also really like it.
