Recent eBay Finds

These retro gold and garnet earrings are my most recent eBay purchase. The online auction site used to be my number one trawling grounds for fantastic watches, Inuit prints and jewels. So many people cleaning out their closets without knowing the value of what they were selling meant that there were many fantastic deals to be had. But these days it just feels like there is less on offer and what’s there is being sold for what it’s worth.

To be honest, I bought the earrings to harvest the clasps for a pair of opal drops that I have. My last great eBay is the Victorian 15ct bow-shaped watch brooch that was part of a lot that I won in July. Now I just need something to hang off it. Maybe I should check out eBay?
