What is the Bargain Barn?

The Bargain Barn is part of our Native American vintage jewelry rescue business. We are committed to finding new homes for used, antique, pawn and vintage jewelry and artifacts. That's why we purchase Native American pieces from estates, inheritances, collection downsizing and New Old Stock (NOS) inventory from closed stores.

We sort jewelry and artifacts into three groups:

  • New Jewelry Store - these are New Old Stock (NOS) items that are brand new and never used, usually from old stores and trading posts that have gone out of business. Many have original price tags.
  • Vintage Shop - this where pre-owned items that we know are Native American made go. Jewelry and artifacts that either have hallmarks identifying the maker or unmistakable characteristics of being made by Indian craftsmen.
  • Bargain Barn - those items that are not Native American made or cannot be verified as such go into our Bargain Barn where prices are very low, sort of like a garage sale online. You'll find costume jewelry along with Native American items that just can't be authenticated. We'll give you as much information as we can about each item, but often the materials, date and origin are unknown.

Some real treasures are lurking in the Bargain Barn and we hope you'll find something special that will complete yet another circle of our jewelry re-homing mission. Happy treasure hunting!

Bargain Barn items are sold as described and are not returnable.

Our Rescue Mission
of
Native American Indian and Other
jewelry and Artifacts

We are in the vintage Native American jewelry rescue business and are passionate about finding new homes for used and vintage jewelry and artifacts. That's why we purchase Native American pieces from estates, inheritances, collection downsizing and New Old Stock (NOS) inventory from closed stores.

Often people contact us after taking a box of Native American jewelry to their local pawn shop and find that a pawn shop is mainly interested in melt value of the metals and not in preserving the beautiful historic pieces. To hear that people have considered selling these treasures for melt value makes us truly sad.

Melt value is usually far below what we would offer for the jewelry. Yet we can't pay retail price for items because of the time and cost involved in finding new homes for them. We have to research, often repair and restore the jewelry, photograph and list each item on our website, and sometimes hold pieces in inventory for years until the right buyer comes along.

Items that are not Native American made or that we cannot verify as such go into our Bargain Barn where you can find some real treasures at low prices.

We hope you'll find something special in our vintage shop that will complete yet another circle of our jewelry re-homing mission.
