Delores Benedict and her late husband, Bill
(Click on picture to read entire Intro)

My Name is Delores and I live in Pompano Beach, Florida.  I was born in Springfield, Illinois and am a Midwesterner by  Heart.  14 Years ago, my husband Bill and I started antique collectible flea market shows at our church.  At first I did not sell anything, then Beanie Babies. I noticed that what was selling was jewelry and I do love jewelry! My first buys to sell were really bad, in fact they are probably laying around here somewhere.

Through JR, I started to learn about vintage costume jewelry. JR is full of wonderful people always willing to help.  Well, 20 pieces to start and thousands later, I am addicted. Our shop closed 3 years ago but I continue to sell on eBay, Etsy, Ruby Lane and Ruby Plaza and I have my own site www.Bitzofglitz.com
Bill passed away 2 years ago. We have 3 children and 5 grandchildren. The terrific people on JR sent me such wonder...

Norma Adams and her beautiful family (Click on Picture to read entire Intro)

I bought my first piece of vintage jewelery from a street vendor while running from the dorm to class when I was in college - it was a bohemian garnet brooch. I paid $5.00 for it, and I was SO disappointed when no one else liked it since it left a big hole in my allowance. Later my husband and I began practicing law as partners, and I had an opportunity to work with a lot of estates. The story around town was, "She'll buy anything that sparkles." At that time, there were few people who valued vintage costume jewelry. Through the years, I bought boxes of it - many of which I stored just like that. We had four children and little time for hobbies, so I did not get to the boxes for many years. My husband became ill in 2005 and died in 2009. During and since that time my hobby has been a treasure hunt, and I have met some of the nicest people - collectors and sellers of vintage jewelry. They ar...

Lilly Vittetow, Mark & Joie
(Click on picture to read entire Intro)

My name is Lilly, short for Lillian and we live in Northern IL.  I've been married to a great and interesting guy, Mark, since Sept. 1991. Yep, 19 years and never a dull moment!  I have 2 stepsons who were great forms of birth control as little boys; Zach 25 living in PA and in the Navy since he was 18 and Luke 23 who is here in IL and is a mechanic for private airplanes.  We have a wonderful daughter, Joie who was born hearing impaired in March of 1999. Before becoming a stay-at-home mom, I was a credit (commercial) manager.  Our family quality time requires a lot of time in the woods enjoying nature. Jeepin' is about as addicting as Vintage Jewelry. Hubby has a shop, OverKill Off Road, and builds Jeep stuff for people that really use their Jeeps! We have 7 different Jeeps currently, 3 run.
When we decided to try for our girl, I had to quit working due to pre-existing insurance...
