Introducing Kitsch-y-Cool's Recycled Vintage...

Long before we were slingin' vintage clothing, Kitsch-y-Cool was obsessed with making kitschy and Cool jewelry from Recycled Vintage parts; buttons, broken jewelry, trinkets, odds and ends.
Vintage Buttons and
Charms on a Vintage Chain
Now here we are 20 years later and once again we have found that what goes around comes back around (gasp! has it been that long since creating those first pieces in my parents basement while watching endless hours of MTV?).

vintage jewelry parts, vintage buttons

These days we are still obsessing over vintage buttons, trinkets, and anything we can take apart to create something new! These newest pieces are currently available in our Charlotte NC location, but coming soon to our website and to our Etsy store. Email us if you'd like more details!

The Last Hurrah...

Well we have just returned from our latest big trip to the MidWest in search for the Kitsch-y-est and Cool-est Vintage! I love love love this Flea Market - and not only did I find great Vintage Jewelry and Clothing, I even found a dealer with gobs of boxes of scrap fabric and sewing items! I tend to gravitate toward the dealers with the boxes all over the ground - I love to dig for items!!!
With a little TLC and some cleaning, this Vintage will be good as new!

Check back tomorrow for details on what is coming this week...I'm thinking handbags and shoes!!
