Please can you help?....

My recycled / vintage charm range has been selling really well, and even after going round most of the charity shops within 12/13 miles of my house, i can't seem to find any more charms!
The above pieces of jewellery are the most recent in my vintage charm range.
The 1st is a phone charm made with and old earring which had flaking plastic faux pearls, i have replaced them with brightly coloured glass beads.
The second is a pendant necklace made with an old curtain ring, various vintage charms, and reclaimed beads.
The 3rd is a 2 strand necklace. I have taken the main pendant, and little tag next to the clasp, which said 'Avon' on it, and attatched a range of various vintage (inc. delft) charms, a plastic pegasus bead and a 1970's half penny.
The last is a pair of earrings. I used a pair of chunky diamonte studs as the top half, and a pair of 1970's handmade enamel ones and some beads as the bottom half, to create a whole new pair of earrings.
I have run out of charms - Please can you help?
If you have any old and unwanted charms or pendants, or lonely earrings, i would be happy to buy them from you. They don't have to be special, just anything i might be able to use for my recycled jewellery.
If you have any please contact me for my postal address at .

I'll ask my Mum if she has anything, Toby. She used to wander round the Lace Market in Birmingham, picking up vintage bits, I think she may be able to help.
