Obviously to get something almost one of a kind it's great to go vintage or handmade..... It doesn't guarantee it was the only one made but chances are there are few and far between. It gives you something original and all its own to your style!!! I love searching for pieces not mass produced... you can go anywhere on Etsy, Ebay or flea markets... you name it. Today on Etsy as it is a rainy day I saw this bird cuff. Birds are everywhere but they all seem to resemble each other!!! sparrows everywhere! I saw this and thought well that is authentic!!! There are only 9 available so you wont be the only one to have it BUT it is still pretty rare!!!
