Christmas time always brings back memories of family members who have passed on. During the last years of my mother's life money was tight so instead of buying us gifts she would give us treasured belongings of hers. She always felt it would be nicer to give a new gift but I always told her this meant so much more to me. How I looked forward to Christmas to see what she had picked out for me. This is my most prized treasure from my mother.
It is a vintage pin broach and came packed in a older Sarah Coventry box with a note. It is surly not Sarah Coventry. The note in my mom's hand writting says
" This is a Pin or Brooch I bought for mama about 1942. Paid about $12.00 ( whole weeks wages and tips ha!) "
Pin is missing a few rhinestones but so beautiful and is very heavy.
Hope that you have enjoyed reading my story and seeing my mama's pin that she gave to my grandma.
