Out of Town Treasure

8AD5ED74-BB8C-414A-A27C-5091A7D5187FI also hit the Value Villages of Kitchener in search of new inventory for the Gracious Good Etsy shop. I was mostly hoping to find watches but instead I tapped into a rich vein of earrings and necklaces.

The biggest score was a pair of MATL-style Mexican silver, amethyst and turquoise statement earrings, but I’m also tempted to keep the turquoise nugget earrings or the hoops.
