27 In Misc


Today Karen and I began the arduous task of sorting through the jewelry and belts that need to be listed on the site.  (with the help of a very tall latte)  It was actually a great time…here is a peek at some of the belts we will be listing.

Cat belt 

I love this vintage kitty by Mimi.


The teeny tiny belts are one of my favorite styles.  I love these kissing frogs.

Zebra belt 

We picked up a new batch of leather belts from Messina's in downtown Grapevine.

Elephant belt 

I can't remember who did this–maybe Alexis Kirk.  I love anything elephant.


Great giraffes…..

Carval hu 

This is actually two buckles that will go on the site.  Each will have it's own soft leather belt.  I love these brass and crystal buckles from the 80's.  The one in front is a Carval Hu..one of my favorite makers.  Here is a picture of my own Carval Hu belt–it is brass all the way around.  I could never part with it–I know I will never find another.  I'm kind of crazy for these free form belts right now, especially with the crystals–what do you all think of them?  

Wonder belt 

I will get a better picture, this does not due it justice.  Look for these pieces, (minus my Wonder Woman belt) on the site in the next two weeks.  We have a lot of shooting to do!!

    Lovely, you really got me hooked on animal belt buckles! I found an amazing Dotty Smith duck to put in my shop, will be listing it very soon! Not sure about the crystal buckles though. Thanks again for the inspiration.

    Hi Judy, I found my crystal belt it is marked ‘Jutra’s’ there is a photo of it on my blog, just wondered if you had ever come across this designer, since you are a vintage expert, as I can’t find out anything about him! Many thanks xx Pearl
