JenniferLynn's Finds at the Atomic Mall

Today I've stopped by JenniferLynn's Finds at the Atomic Mall. Jennifer is an artist, writer, and animal lover who lives in Maryland just outside the DC area. She loves to barter, use Freecycle, reclaim, dumpster dive, and try to help others out which she's done by joining a community of artists who put their proceeds into helping animals.

At JenniferLynn's Finds right now the major focus is books but you will also find some silver. Jennifer is always adding things and says that you'll never know what might turn up. She has the entire collection of the 1909 Harvard Classics (50 books in all) which cover every major literary figure, philosopher, religion, folklore, and historical subject through the 20th century. I love silver so the Reed & Barton Holiday silverplate is one of my favorites.

Jennifer also uses the Dragon Nthly as a promotional blog and can also be found at the Vintage Village.

Posh Adornment on Etsy

Looking for antique jewelry ... then you have to visit Posh Adornment, where you will find a selection of Victorian, Art Nouveau, Art Deco, and Edwardian art glass jewelry. This beautiful Victorian gold beaded fringe bib collar is one of my favorites.This mother/daughter team has been selling antique, fine and vintage jewelry for many years. Collecting antique jewelry has been in the family for many generations.

If you don't find what you're looking for at their etsy store check out their online store PoshAdornment.com.

They also have a Posh Adornment blog, where they not only write about jewelry and other people's fashion and jewelry items, but also have links to their numerous articles on eHow which showcase many of their other interests. While at the blog, read how Susan got started in the antique jewelry business, In The Beginning Was The Word ... And The Word Was Jewelry.

I learned about Posh Adornment and have met many other vintage enthusiasts at the Vintage Village. Tomorrow I will introduce you to JenniferLynn's Finds.

The Vintage Village

Have you checked out the Vintage Village yet? It is a gathering of Vintage Enthusiasts.

I started selling vintage items and repurposed vintage items on Etsy a couple months ago and I stumbled on to the Vintage Village. It's a social network where you can browse pictures of vintage items that members have for sale, read articles on various vintage topics, and best of all get help identifying a vintage item from the 'Vintage Detectives'.

It's a great place to socialize. There are over 600 members both buyers and sellers and all are very knowledgable and willing to share information. So stop on by and tell them Endless Collectabilities sent you.
