Last week I had a great adventure in a world diametrically opposed to the bottle club world and the adventure I’d enjoyed a week previous at the Toronto Bottle Show. Yet in many ways they were similar. I wrote about the 2010 Vintage Costume Jewellery Show and published the article in the Shovel Guild Library on Dumpdiggers, and therein I explored the similarities of experts honing their crafts, after years of learning they become gems.
Remarkable people like Dianne Rawski who gave me a great one on one training about vintage cameo brooches and what to look for when trafficking in this obscure sub category
On 24 April 2010 Dumpdiggers descended on the Toronto Vintage Costume Jewellery Club Annual Show & Sale at Leaside Gardens. There were twenty dealers here vending all manner of collectibles but mostly designer costume jewellery from the 1950’s and 60’s
