Day-Lab: My Unattainable Dream

Is it possible to have a favorite shopping site, but to have never purchased anything from it? Well, in my case, yes. I love Day-lab, and I look at and lust over the amazing finds on this site almost weekly. Unfortunately, Amy Shutt, the owner and operator, only takes Paypal...I don't have Paypal (bad past experience). I hate Paypal. I don't blame her...I know it is a small business and all, but I would be happy, oh so happy, if she ever decides to expand her purchase options, so I could buy instead of only dream...

Day-lab specializes in fun and affordable vintage dead stock jewelry and accessories produced from the 1930s through the 1980s, as well as independently designed and handmade jewelry, accessories, housewares, and gift items. Many of these items are unique in that they are inherently limited in availability or one-of-a-kind.

Amy has such an amazing eye...here are a few of my favorites:



Midcentury Boomerang Earring, $6.00



Headbanger Ball necklace, $16


Modernist Headband, $10


Fluid Tortoise Drop, $18.


Ivory Cluster Earrings, $8.00


Nouveau Vintage Feather Necklace, $24.


Sea Foam Flower, $10.


Carciofo Necklace, $16


Real Feather Broach, $12
