TSL Member In The Spotlight

The TSL Spotlight is shining on Evie Jewelry
Where It’s Not About the Jewelry, It’s About the Fire in Your Eyes

For some absolutely beautiful vintage jewelry that has stood the test of time, pay a visit to Evie Jewelry. Youi find gemstone jewelry, including topaz, emerald, garnets,and more. I was particularlly taken by a couple of the topaz pieces. The owner must spend many hours searching for rare or hard to find vintage jewelry pieces – both signed and unsigned and has a wonderful selection of bracelets, rings, necklaces, earrings and more. In fact, her love of vintage jewelry is obvious… and, in reading her recent blog entry, titled Go Green by Buying and Wearing Vintage Jewelry made me aware of several reasons why buying vintage jewelry is a good idea.

And, if you need supplies to care for your already owned items, visit the jewelry supplies page at Evie Jewelry for polishing cloths, cleaning solution, and jewelry keeper bags.

There is so much to see at Evie Jewelry! Being a June baby, I was curions to see what she had in the way of pearl jewelry, Oh, what a nice surprise! Along with a couple of classic pearl strands, there were several unusual and stunning necklaces that anyone would be thrilled to recieve. With gift-giving season at hand, I would be hard pressed to select the perfect gift, even after narrowing down my selection to just the pearl items, so it’s good to see that gift certificates are available, too.

Our own Sally Brown, who owns Evie Jewelry, is a veteran web seller, having been selling online since 2003. She is also versatile, owning a second store, called Evie Baby Childrens Shop, selling new clothing for Girls and Boys, including Baby Gap, Gymboree, Janie and Jack, Oskosh, Carter’s, and Guess Baby brands, along with gently used infant and toddler clothes at bargain prices.

An interesting little tidbit: The name “Evie” in both stores is in honor of Sallly’s little granddaughter.
