  1. My thoughts too noob as soon as I saw this. I love this image but we know a little history.
  2. How big is this? To me it looks like a sandwich tray. Please give dimensions with your requests if you really want help.
  3. He said - give a hoot, don't pollute....hmm, what did you mean Roycroftbooksfromme1?
  4. You really should post sizes with your description on first post.

  12. Or it could be a Lucite item from 1960's-present? You should wear this when you are having a martini or vodka shot. Nice!
  13. Yes, it's probably still on PBS.org. I think you would like it altho being a reality show there is nothing real about what they are buying things for.... You bought some AMAZING things. My favorite i...

  17. Mr. Valentino97 also brags about his bowling abilities. He only last 5 minutes hunting for treasure - all done in.
  18. Hi AH - it was taken off ebay. I think someone contested that it was bakelite.
  19. Thanks inky - another thing about these old chunky link bracelets. Often made in larger size because the fashion was to wear them over gloves. Thanks for loving it.
  20. Hi Mel - it's probably fairly new. I have this exact S clasp. Very pretty tho. I don't know enough about amber so I distrust all of it - sorry.
  21. Yes - different shades of amber? Love them!!
  22. I have similar but mine aren't bakelite.
  23. Thanks Nadia - I had a really great maroon similar to yours that I gave away for the perfect birthday girl. Aren't they wonderful? And not really expensive. My fave is the green one.
  24. These are very charming tho! I think they are really fun. Thanks Kyra for finding them on ebay for 3 euros!!

  42. I can see this on a 1920's felt cloche.
  43. Not Frankoma? Great color 1960's?
  44. I love this new watch and the ad you posted with it. My landlord's kids contacted the Hoarders crew. They came by and told her about the show, blah, blah, and told her about a charity -thrift store...
  45. I still have Thunderbolt and all his accessories, but not the box.
