This is a group of vintage belt buckles, taken off of old quality womens clothing and bought at an estate sale. They all have that pearly look and varigated color that's typical of being made out of oyster shells, or wood and shaped and engraved with interest so that they reflect the light just wonderfully. The figure 8 buckle is a metal backing with rhinestones, and has all the stones in there.|
The largest buckle in this group is made of carved wood, 2" by 2 1/4", and grooved with curved lines. It would hold an inch and a quarter wide belt. The smallest is a rhinestone covered 1 1/2" 5/8" figure 8 with a divider in the middle and would hold a 3/8" belt. The quarter is in the midst of the buckles for size comparison, you don't get it with the lot of buckles.
If you are a sewer, or one who likes to enhance the clothing you buy with very special accessories, this selection is for you.
We have a whole collection of buckles, gloves and purses in our store, on a lot of themes. Most of them came from estate sales, the collection of a lifetime by someone now gone. If you're interested in increasing your collection, we're happy to combine shipping and save you money. Just pick out all of the things you want, don't pay for them, and email us to let us know you're done shopping. We'll send you a combined invoice for all your treasures with substantially reduced shipping prices. Thanks for looking.
The fine print:
Payment: PayPal only-within 3 days please.
Item as described: If we lied, you’d know it and we’d be gone.
Communication: If you have questions--ask. We’ll answer as quickly as possible.
Shipping time: We mail by USPS the day after payment is received (frequently the same day). You choose how quickly your purchase gets to you by the method you pay for. We may substitute the faster Priority Mail when Parcel Post is actually selected because the cost is often similar.
Shipping Cost: Postage is expensive, and we package carefully. You pay postage plus a usual charge of $2.50 per domestic shipment for box, tape, label and padding. That’s as low as we can get and stay in business. We will combine items to save you money.
Feedback: Fairness helps everyone. Be honest and so will we. If you give us 5’s, we can stick around and find you more good stuff.
Returns: If you’re not happy, email us. We’ll try to make it right. We can’t refund shipping since it’s already in Uncle Sam’s pocket, but return your item and we’ll refund your purchase price.
The bottom line: This should be fun for all of us. We’re common folks, looking for quality one-of-a-kind items, mostly from estate sales, to keep our customers happy.
