In the early 1980's (heavens...has it been that long?), I collected more than 200 Enid Collins purses, many of them in a horrid state of disrepair. I also bought as many of the replacement jewels as I could and repaired the handbags. With all the handbags now in the hands of other collectors and my collections moving in another direction, these unused jewels may be a help to the Collins enthusiast or repair savvy individual interested in accurate restoration.
Colors are as shown and what you see is what you get. There are better than 300 pieces here. No breakage in any of these and no brittleness. Again, these are unused replacement jewels. If you require photos of individual pieces or by set or by number or by size or by color or or or or or......I have them, so do ask.
These have an iridescent quality, some with stitch holes, others to be the border of flowers, some to be centers of flowers...you get the idea. Sold as a lot at less than $1 a piece.
Bag rescue, an honorable profession.

A CONFIRMED ADDRESS: PayPal has confirmed that you live where you say you live. If you are shipping to an alternate address as with a gift, please add that address to your Paypal account BEFORE paying for your order. I only accept payments from users who have a Confirmed Address.

I reserve the right to REFUND and CANCEL any transactions which do not comply with PAYPAL guidelines or the guidelines I have listed here.
