Garage sales are usually full of nothing but encyclopedia sets, cracked vases, and XL ski jackets; but occasionally one finds a beautiful trinket or talisman that can be transformed into something meaningful and useful. Trash and Trinkets by Gypsy Trading Company takes small discards from daily life, such as old keys and metal adornments, and turns them into jewelry and precious keepsakes. Their necklaces, pendants, lockets, hair accessories, and earrings are carefully created by choosing the most unique and pretty discards and assembling them into new and beautiful wholes. These objects are sentimental without being delicate; some of the jewelry features bullets and skulls. Our favorites are the whistle, key, and eye necklaces, which can add an antique yet edgy feel to any outfit.
