Vintage Key Rings from Lourdes..





There are what you call a key ring with a difference. They are ex-shop stock and although they are vintage they are new at the same time as they have never been used.

They were found in the back of an old shop that had been closed for many years in Lourdes.

We have four available, 2 in this pretty blue colour.....



and 2 in black.....


All come with a certificate which has written in both English and French "We hereby certify that the water contained in this cross has truly been collected from the miraculous Lourdes spring - Made in France".

Each keyring measures 21 cms long and you will find more details here and here....

I have a few more lovely items that I found in Lourdes and plan to add them to the shop within the next day or two...

  2. It seems blaphemous to me that someone apparently turned rosaries into keychains. Whatever sells,I guess, is the mantra today.

  3. I agree Sheila, whatever sells. There is no respect for Catholics today.

  4. They were not turned into keyrings, they were made as key rings and date back to the 1950' and were sold to visitors to Lourdes.
