Thrift Tips: Brooches Add Sparkle

The display case at Community Services Thrift Store is one of the most popular areas of the store — for men and women.

Secondhand shops are a great way to add a bit of sparkle to your outfit for next to nothing. The racks inside the case often contain treasures such as bracelets, earrings, the odd fishing lure, intricate belt buckles, watches and necklaces. brooch2

While each piece can be a great find, brooches are a fantastic thrift store purchase. They can be pinned every where and are great conversational pieces. They have personality and character that range from vintage gems to modern metal flora. They add a pop of colour and can be grouped together for a unique piece (or bridal bouquet).

The best part, it adds a bit of flair even for those with a metal allergy who can’t really invest in earrings, necklaces and bracelets without a tag listing the metals used.

Next time you visit Community Services Thrift Store, take a moment to check out the brooches for a bit of added sparkle!
