    Has anyone purchased their sixpence from silversixpence.com? I am considering buying from them, but wanted to check first.

    Thanks

      I didn't, sorry...but i did have to go look up sixpence because i'm a dummy and wasn't up my traditions. for anyone like me, it's the oft forgotten part of Something Old, Something New, Something Borrowed, Something Blue...and a Sixpence in her shoe! It symbolizes wealth for the bride and groom.

      so now yet another thing to add to my growing list of things to purchase!

          I am doing this since I am 3rd generation Irish. My FI is going to try and see if can find an original at a coin show. If not we will probably be getting it off this site too.

              I am not wearing shoes... however I am making my own barefoot sandals (with the help of fmil). They are going to be my something new, blue, and sixpence items all in one. I am getting a sixpence similar to the pendant one on silversixpence.com and adding it as a charm to my left barefoot sandal.

              Tada!

              Look mom, no shoes!

                  Thanks! Fi and I both have divorced parents so we are just a little superstitious and I HAD to find a way to work a sixpence in somewhere. :)
