I found these in a factory bead/button outlet in Providence when I lived there. Providence was a center for jewelry making and supplies. These beads have been made by hand on a wire which is in the place of findings like headpins etc. The box they came in had many items and many of them had a Miriam Haskell tag on them....which I have since sold. NO way to be sure where these came from but they are old and most of them are in very good usuable condition. They are 32 drop beads...40 larger beads....18 small thin cylinders and there are over 180 of the small beads...many of which have already had the wire cut and the loops made. There are also a few oval pieces that have the wire broken off and were probably used on earrings. Great old lot of lots of beads...240 pieces! Check back I have a lot more to list.
I ship when I can. What that means is...I ship as soon as humanly possible...for me. I use the US Post Office and I try to be as accurate with my shipping/handling charges as possible. Sometimes I am right on the money...and then there are times...I am not. All I can say is...I do my best all the time. I believe in using the common sense approach. I ship basically on faith. If you wish to buy insurance, etc...you will have to let me know...but as of yet...the PO has been 100% with delivery! I have to say this however...please don't hold me responsible if you don't receive your package as a result of the PO making an error. If you want to insure your package...great...if not...then I really can't be responsible.
Also....a word on international. I will ship international...but the likelihood that I may be wrong on the shipping is greater here. Sometimes the shipping/handling charges are not adequate for international...so if the postage seems too low for international...then please understand and be ready to compensate me for the extra postage. On the reverse side...if my shipping/handling charges are too high...and you have paid thru PAYPAL...a refund will be issued. Thanks for your understanding.
I should also mention that when I mark an order "shipped" that is for my purpose...it eliminates the confusion and the onset of a 'senior' moment for me when I am packing items up. Thanks!!!
Please...only PAYPAL and money orders. Thanks so much.
