Even if you know exactly what you’re looking for, finding the perfect vintage jewelry piece can often be a daunting task. However, some items are worth the time and effort. If you’re hoping to speed up the process a little, you might want to do some necessary research and figure out which jewelry auctions or festivals are closest to you. This is perhaps the best way to accidentally stumble upon a new item to add to your collection.
According to Ventura County Star, events such as the antiques bazaar at the Goebel Senior Center in Thousand Oaks, California, can be a great way to find some rare pieces and have fun at the same time. Dozens of vendors will be present at this particular event, offering items ranging from antique clocks to toys and fine jewelry. There will even be door prizes, as well as a silent auction. Professional evaluators will be present in order to appraise platinum jewelry and other popular items.
"The concept is loosely similar to the well-known PBS program Antiques Roadshow," Andrea Koval, recreation supervisor at Goebel, told the news source. "It offers the visitor the chance of seeing the antique wares of many vendors all at one location."
