Retro fashion heavy on the wiggle, with a bit of swing and some contemporary designs as well. A great source for dramatic body-conscious silhouettes that play well with both the modern and yesteryear accessories offered in the handbag and jewelry sections. They also carry bath and body goods from Lollia, Tokyo Milk, and Dolce Mia, scented candles from Voluspa, oversized sunglasses, and mini hats for cocktail hour.

Vintage jewelry that most definitely goes for the sparklier finds. Divided into signed and unsigned, the catalog is rhinestones galore with bracelets, necklaces, brooches, with sections for bakelite, cameos, and sterling silver. This is also a good spot for back-in-the-day compacts.

Vintage that specializes in high-end, drop-dead glamour, from the Victorian/Edwardian era up through the present day. Flapper shawls, clingy starlet gowns, New Look party dresses, glitzy coats, Pucci maxis, with a reworked section that harmonizes these disparate periods together into sweet new creations. The accessories page is full of unusual detours from all-retro styling, preferring a bold, modern look that veers between delicate and rugged: obi belts, body harnesses, rings flaunting chunks of sparkling rock, modern neck ruffs, and chain/fringe necklaces that are as stunning as they are gigantic.

This shop immortalizes all kinds of vintage vehicles, dipping not just into kustom kulture but going back to antique roadsters for splashing across the shiny expanse of a cuff bracelet. The Recycling page repurposes emblems into necklaces, grills poke up from wrists and fingers, tikis and tropical flora also pop up as recurring motifs, and custom is welcome.

Gold and silver charms that offer something for everyone from ice cream cones to brains. Brass knuckles, hearts, grenades, bowling pins, snubnosed pistols, wisdom teeth, keys, tiny little pumpkins, the knives and scissors would make cute gifts for chefs and hairdressers. Also necklaces and bracelets where the charms are worked into the chain, cufflinks, and rings where the cupcakes are sprinkled with diamonds.

Handmade jewels hybridized from metal and gemstones. Among silver honeycombs, small waterfalls of chain, and quartz-beaded “full moons,” the Bonne Chance collection renders the rockabilly card suit in rivety discs and dangling charms. Commissions welcome.
