I mentioned a long time ago that I like thrift shops! I like crowded shops, I like dark shops, I like dirty shops, I like to dig in shops, I love it when the owner has no idea what they have and I especially love finding a diamond among the rough!
I was in a shop that I had never been in before. It was so packed full of stuff that half of the shop she had to move stuff so you could get to it. I spied this very dirty case hanging on a hook just within my fingertip’s reach.
Do you see it, too? It says Gorham Sterling! After some research I found that my little key case was from the 1920s and worth between $150 and $225. At least that is the range of prices listed on the on-line sites. Mine shows its age a bit. The leather has seen better days and a couple of the key holders are missing, but the sterling repousse top is still lovely!
