These coins all have holes punched in them for sewing or otherwise attaching to costuming. Most are the heavier metal. Three of these coins are made of such cheap metal they feel like plastic (probably aluminum or aluminum alloy). They all appear useable but these are vintage pieces and may have other flaws.
You will receive the the pieces shown in the photos on this page. Please look at photos carefully for condition.
PLEASE KEEP IN MIND that many of these items will be HEAVY. While I have tried to keep the prices of these items as low low low as possible, shipping does cost by weight, so for many items, the shipping will seem like quite a lot. If you are ordering multiple pieces and would like me to see if I can get a lower shipping cost with flat or regional rate shipping, please email me!
ABOUT THIS SALE: These items are offered as they are, including dirt, grime, mismatched pieces, broken bits, tears, dents, tangles, missing components, heavy patina, etc. Over my 17 years in the tribal adornments business, I have amassed quite a collection of miscellaneous bits and bobs that I always put aside for "later", naively thinking I would someday sort/clean/salvage them and either use them myself or offer them for sale. This turned into years of stashing miscellaneous items. The recent stay-at-home orders offered me a perfect chance to get this project going. I did get them "sorted" (sort of) but they are still DIRTY, UNMATCHED, TANGLED or otherwise UNFIT for dividing into packets or offering as regular Red Camel items. Most of these pieces are OLD, BROKEN, MISMATCHED, DIRTY, SUPER DIRTY, HORRIBLY DIRTY, TANGLED, TORN, LOOSE, MISSING PARTS, LUMPED TOGETHER and some are in PERFECT CONDITION! Thre are no fancy photos here, just the basics on DIY and other pieces that have been hanging around for a long time and need to go go go! Please enjoy!
