Items in our Vintage Shop are either USED or NEW. They might come from inheritances,
estate sales, private collections, and store liquidations. Many items are brand
new (NOS, New Old Stock) and in perfect condition while others may show tarnish,
scratches and other signs of use. Major issues will be described in detail and
shown in photos. Vintage Shop items are sold as described and are not returnable.

of Native American
Indian Jewerly and Artifacts
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.
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.
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.
hope you'll find something special in our vintage shop that will complete yet
another circle of our jewelry re-homing mission.
