Elizabethtaylor_2 You're too smart to be taken in by those iconic baby blue boxes, darling. Even31_multipart3f2_multipart3f2_img__2 savvy sprite Holly Golightly only window-shopped at Tiffany's. An esteemed  colleague here at The Times named Pauline O'Connor turned The Rage on to a local treasure trove for vintage jewelry: the Sherman Oaks Antique Mall on Ventura Boulevard. 

According to our source -- who's got a keen eye for vintage everything -- the place is jam-packed with amazing antique costume jewelry. Bakelite bangles, art deco enamels, and good old rhinestone chokers that would make Joan Collins envious enough to draw blood. Prices are fair too.

Got a great local source for style? Don't hoard. Convince The Rage below and you may see it posed here and have something to show your grandchildren.
