I LOVE to shop at charity shops with my favourite being the Kloof & Highway SPCA. I love to scratch through peoples unwanted items and I have found fabulous things. I sort of like Corningware okay okay I LOVE Corningware and I buy when I find it. My daughter Laura looks through the clothing to find interesting outfits. Charity shops are a treasure trove.
Now taking this a step further than reduce, reuse and recycle. There is a highly talented couple who make gorgeous jewellery out of silver cutlery. Cutlery!!
I cannot remember the first time I either heard or saw this jewellery but I have been following them on Twitter and Facebook for a while. Finally got to meet them at their stall at the Sunday Tribune Garden Show.
They are Ryan and Liesa Rollin and together they are Rollin Vintage.
"We are a married couple thatinding antique/vintage/retro items is like going on a treasure hunt and uncovering someone else's forgotten/parted loved pieces. We love hunting in little antique shops, markets, Hospice, SPCA and any place we see we can lay our hands on.
Each piece of jewellery, is sourced by us and hand crafted with attention to detail and care. Each piece is unique and has its own story."
See! I am not the only one who loves to charity shop.

They are based in Durban and supply a few shops in and around the city and also sell at markets. If you love what you see from the pictures above - contact them. I am sure they would be more than happy to send you one of their gorgeous items if you are not in Durban. Christmas is coming!!
