If you are still looking for a perfect and unique Christmas gift for that special someone, be sure to check out Candy Shop Vintage. After years of collecting and selling vintage jewelry, Charleston, SC-based designer Deirdre Zahl launched her own vintage inspired jewelry line, The Candy Shop Collection.
Deirdre developed an encyclopedic knowledge of vintage jewelry while working in fashion and design in New York. She has amassed an impressive collection of vintage jewelry, primarily made in the United States from the 1950s through the 1980s. Her pieces have even been featured on the hit show Mad Men!
However, the blessing and the curse of vintage is that it tends to be one of a kind, so once it’s gone… it’s gone. This led Deirdre to start her own line, inspired by her vintage collection and drawing upon the practices of old-school jewelry houses… all made in the U.S. Here are a few of my favorite things from her current collection…
For more vintage inspired baubles and goodies, please visit Candy Shop Vintage. The Collection is also sold at specialty events, select retail boutiques, and debuted at trunk shows at Bloomingdale’s and at Henri Bendel in New York. Deirdre’s vintage collection is available exclusively through One Kings Lane.
Deirdre lives in Charleston, SC, with her husband John and daughter Daphne. And by the way, her design talent is not limited to jewelry… check out her precious baby girl’s nursery, featured by Apartment Therapy!
