But I recently came across something that was too cute to pass up -- a brass acorn locket necklace, picked up from the Drake General Store on Queen St. W., in Toronto, for $18.
The locket has a vintage vibe, so upon getting home, I started doing some research. It actually DOESN'T seem to be a vintage piece. The locket may well be merely a commonly manufactured and simple-to-purchase bead, but regardless, at $18, the piece feels like a steal.
Check out these other online options I found. Nearly identical.
I'm a little bummed that my necklace isn't true vintage. (The Drake General Store maybe even have more of 'em for sale. I'm not sure.) I hunger for one-of-a-kind, but in this case, I think I can handle being one of the many.
I'll wear it proudly. Not everyday, mind you.
'Cause sometimes you feel like a nut. Sometimes you don't. ;)
