Vintassion Uncovered - #49, 26/09/14


Hi Vintage Lovers,


We're pleased to offer you another lovely guest blog this week courtesy of Vintassion Seller Caroline of Jessamy Elvira who very kindly shares with us her passion for sourcing lovely and pretty vintage jewellery from the Cotswold area...




Caroline loves Vintage jewellery because it 'adds style' and she particularly enjoys sourcing brooches connected with nature and flowers through her interest in growing wild flowers...
