  1. For many people, vintage jewelry conjures up images of sifting through disorganized bins at yard sales, consignment shops, and flea market booths. There are other options for locating vintage jewelry that’s been well-cared for and priced appropriately. You can actually shop for vintage pieces at local jewelry stores and online jewelry stores.
