"Good things come to those who wait."
~ Unknown

It has been a very busy  month here at Nostalgic Summer. I'm creating new pieces for my online shops, a few upcoming shows and for a special offer just for you!

We were able to find a supplier with a great price on our vintage brass bangle blanks (that are "Made in the USA), and I would like to pass my savings along to you.

Going forward I will be offering the "Earth Friendly Repurposed Vintage Tin Bangle Bracelet"
at a new low price of $32 in Nostalgic Summer's Etsy Shop

*But the BEST NEWS is you will now be able to purchase the "Earth Friendly Repurposed Vintage Tin Bangle Bracelet" from me here or through our Facebook Page for the lower price of $30!
*This price does not include shipping.

And the EVEN BETTER NEWS is for a very limited time you can purchase TWO bangles for $55.

Just send a message to: with the bangles you would like (all choices are in the photo below), your shipping address, cc # & the 3 digit cvc on back of card. You will receive a confirmation email once we process your order. Or if you prefer we can send you a bill through Paypal.

So tell me...are you a two bangle or a three bangle?

Happy Spring! Happy Bangle!

~jolies roses~

“What's in a name? that which we call a rose
By any other name would smell as sweet.”

~William Shakespeare

Spring is in the air and the roses are in bloom at Été Nostalgique De Luxe.

Lovely vintage needlepoint rose pendant.

The woodland creatures are out and about.

A lovely guilloche rose.

And something pretty in rhinestones and red paste stones.

Perfect spring pieces..don't you think?
It's not to early to think about mothers day!

Enjoy your weekend everyone!

~A Free Spirit~

"I'm a free spirit. I believe I'm here on earth to admire and enjoy it; that's my religion."
 ~Alice Walker
 I have been enjoying all the wonderful dress forms at the "Dress Form Ball" and thought I should introduce my dress form. She is not as old or fancy as most I've seen, but she is unique and has a style all her own.

She is a bit bohemian, and not conventional!

She doesn't have a name yet.....maybe you could help her find the perfect one?

Check out some really fantastic dress forms at "The Dress Form Ball"
