On a recent trip to NYC I happened upon East 9th street between 1st and 2nd. The destination was a lunch place for Japanese noodles but the cabbie dropped us a block away from where we meant to go. So on the jaunt to lunch I spied several fabulous vintage/consignment shops. My favorite of which was Cadillac's Castle. It's got a mix of new/overstock and used/consignment and the stuff is organized and labelled in such a way that you don't have to pick through a bunch of stuff. I bought three fabulous rings there. The first of which is a fun pewter metal chain ring for ~$15.
One of the other fabulous spots for fun jewels is Spring Street in Soho. I was on the hunt for another leather bracelet with rhinestones and/or studs. I bought one months ago for $20 but now all the street vendors have hiked the prices up to closer to $40-45 which I refused to pay. But I found this lovely woman on West Broadway just south of Spring who sold me both of these fabulous bracelets for $40 total. And since I'm a firm believer in pile it on, I like to wear them both together!
That's it for my latest jewelry shopping expedition.
