The items you find here are mostly inherited. Those that are not have been collected over many years, by both my husband (aviation items mostly) and myself (everything else).
We moved back to Europe (Austria) from the Far East about four months ago, and into an apartment. We decided it is time to cull our collections, and hence the Collectablesnet Shop here.
Most of the Vintage Costume Jewelry was inherited by me from my late aunt, who lived in Santa Monica and regularly attended the jewelry sales at the MGM studio. She was definitely the magpie of the family, a trait which has passed down to me.
If you want us to keep an eye out for what you collect on our travels here in Europe, please let me know. We'll do our best to find whatever you are looking for!
Everything is described to the best of my ability, and I spend a great deal of time researching each and every item. But I am by no means an expert. If you want to ask questions, or know something about a piece for sale here, please feel free to contact me.
