Hello there!

Well if you like a little vintage you maybe noticed we removed it from the website, we apologize to our customers who enjoyed it, it became difficult to maintain with all the fun changes we have coming up this year so we decided to keep it boutique-only, if you love the vintage we highly recommend you email Cerena on store@wendyminkjewelry.com, she will be including plenty of vintage in her new boutique-based emails so you will see all the new goodies and can always request specific images.

This week we are re-merchandising in the store and making room for some lovely new vintage pieces, so, we decided to have a little blog auction of some great vintage pieces currently residing here, take a look at the starting bid and then place you bid in the comments below, please remember to leave us your email address and remember to check in again to see if you have been outbid! Please note that the HIGHEST amount entered below will be the amount owed for the piece. Hope you enjoy these fine pieces and happy bidding!

p.s. for queries regarding the pieces please email Cerena in the store, note that the bids close on Tuesday the 18th, we will contact the 'winners' shortly after!
