Year View Mirror: Brooches

All week long, I’ll be counting down my favourite finds by category. Today it’s brooches.

AT number 3… I know I just wrote about these, but I love, love, LOVE these leather floral brooches. And they were like 99 cents each at the Value Village!

The race for number 1 brooch was tight. After all, I found this 1920s-era 18k gold diamond and ruby bar brooch in a 7 for $10 bin at a yard sale. It’s old and it’s gold. But I never wear it (scared that I’ll lose it), so the number one brooch find of the year is…

…this David-Andersen sterling enamel fish brooch, which I found at Gadabout last March (yes it was over the Thrift Club limit of $36, but not by much).
