Day of Sale Hopping

Three weeks ago, I checked the estate sale listings and found a couple that appeared to have a bit of bling, so hit the streets and look what I found !! :-D A perfume bottle pendant that was marked $5 - I offered $3 and it is MINE ! Checked ebay and found one for $44.99 BIN. Did some checking around, and found a couple at other sites. One stated 1950's and one 80's - anyone know? One stated the cap was sterling and one said silver tone. I have not polished mine yet, so don't know how that will come out, but there are no markings and don't think it is SS. What ever it is - I like it, and have some cobalt blue beads that will look so pretty with it.
While looking for info. on mine I ran across an emerald green one like it also .
There was a large, antique, victorian pendant that I would loved to have bought, but had to pass - out of my price range. Found this broach and small pendant at the same sale. Broach needs a bit of repair, and the pin is off the back, so will use it in a necklace.
Decided to keep going and went to a thrift store I had not been to in a while, as had left empty handed the last few trips. Got lucky this trip and found a few rhinestones to work with.......
The necklace on the right is napier and in excellent condition, so will leave as is.
Next sale was in an area I probably should not have been in. Not a lot of bling and what was there, was pricey - probably property of the person handling the sale. Worker asked me if I was looking for anything in particular and when I told her, she said she sold a bag full of bits and pieces earlier that morning - late again. Decided to leave the hood and get back to an area I was more familiar with and it was lunch time. Checked a couple of yard sales, but did not even stop as there was lots of children's toys, etc., and those usually don't have anything I am looking for.

Was out and about quiet a bit yesterday, stopped at one yard sale but nothing I was interested in buying.
Steadily building up my supplies and anxious to get busy creating again.

It was a gorgeous day here, but expecting some rain by mid week.
