Disco Cumi Cloud! I'm a 70's kid from the Midwest. My parents went to farm sales and I tagged along - now I know more about antiques than they do. My favorites: old Disco Cumi Cloud! I'm a 70's kid from the Midwest. My parents went to farm sales and I tagged along - now I know more about antiques than they do. My favorites: old plastics: bakelite, celluloid, Lucite, bird stuff, sewing supplies, depression and other glass, Native American, Mission era everything, advertising graphics and tin lithos, the odd ugly thing that makes me laugh out loud immediately when I see it..... Yes I'm addicted to old things. Cumi is 8. (Read more)

  1. It looks like a Catholic cruet set to me. But I doubt those were sold at estate sales or possibly where money was needed like in Michigan.
  2. Can you show us more of the items?
  3. Yes one girl's ugly is another's lovely.
  4. What does roached mean? These are beautiful!
  5. Yes, thanks for the story and great to know you are wearing it!
  6. Gorgeous photos!
  7. Love it! Nice graphics - I hope one day to post a watch you don't own and would like to. ....HMM, you liked my quack packer didn't you? LOL I am back in the land of the very hot desert world after a l...
  8. Fancigirl these are so pretty! I like colored rhinestones too. Do you wear your items?
  9. Thanks Belltown!
  10. Well friends - I have seen it in person and it is a little on the not fantastic side. Lee - your pictures are great! Hunter - where is that OOPS category that Lee and I were giggling about. I have so...
  11. These look to be in perfect unworn condition - thanks - very nice! I love seeing copper and thank you my friend for thinking of me.
  12. Very interesting Ken that you looked at this right now. I have been conversing w/an ETSY copper seller about my best pieces in the past 2 days and this one is! You have a very good eye. Originally I h...
  13. And definitely not fine jewelry. I am sure you realize that.
  14. I love it! I recently bought a signed Norway 1970's? pewter cuff w/a very scary soft spot crack right thru the center of the cuff on the back side (doesn't show thru to the front yet!). I won't sell i...
  15. Wow I love these!
  16. Nice! are these clear or yellow rhinestones? Personally I prefer colored rhinestones.
  17. Pearls were very popular all thru 20th century (and beyond of course). Sometimes a retailer would sell different grade pearls that could be "upgraded" w/a sterling or even better clasp. Customers also...
  18. Ken you realize you are going to own all the Trifari and we'll come a begging someday?
  19. I would have thought it was celluloid - 1930's-50's. Sometimes marked France or Japan - but a lot of it is unmarked. Very interesting.
  20. id - I love your goodies! You know I like the Bohemian glass beads most! I have a similar middle-eastern enameled necklace but mine are garnets and I like your's better. Thanks for posting these.
  21. The Reds were really bad weren't they? Found out more last yr. on trip to Hungary. Individual thought and creativity frowned on until 1950's revolt...but most we met last year over age 40 were still v...
  22. Thanks for sharing - I love your memories. I have wonderful Grandma memories looking thru blanket boxes and chests of quilts, and clothes and china - but she didn't have much jewelry. Darn it!
  23. Hi there AGH - thanks for looking thru my stash again and loving them!
  24. Anne - what an interesting comparison! Yes, the Royal Doulton is ceramic and these are wood painted. I think my clip is older. Thanks for your input and links.
  25. Thank you all for your love of these. Nephew Shaun was happy to add to his mid-century décor.
  26. Thank you all for your loves and the nice comments on this old coral cuff bracelet. It is a very nice and collectible jewelry item.
  27. Sorry to hear - hope I'm not bringing up sad old memories. I've been on vacation for the past week. Boo hoo! You have so many other great vases but how sad to lose this beauty.
  28. Oh so much more special w/your sweet dog inside!
  29. Share - that's okay I thought the same! Beautiful gift Sean!
  30. It looks like a rug spanker. Maybe they had a gentler one for linens
  31. Liz is very ugly.
  32. Thank you girlfriend - I was surprised you and your sweeties didn't see it on my dresser and ask me about it. It is a very nice item. I wear it a lot and it doesn't have one scratch on it. Looks like ...
  33. Mani knows!
  34. You got that right fhrjr2!
  35. How do you find something like this today!? I love it and not just because I am a bird nut.
  36. Thank you agh for your love!
  37. I love this! And I really like the watch band
  38. I love this!
  39. They look great together! As usual you took beautiful pictures.
  40. Hope to see more of your collection - this is really great!

  42. What an incredible picture of your lovely items. This is so gorgeous!
  43. Nice collection. I like the 62. And - love your hands.
  44. I guess I am used to some CW friends being a little upset when their items are not old...sometimes I won't comment. I should know better - you love finding the history of your items and sharing as ...
  45. Yes - nicer than my examples. Wear it in best summer health!!! Do you have a green bracelet from your FL trip to share too?
  46. Hi Ken! Hope you and your family had a wonderful holiday weekend. This time I stuck close to home but had a bbq and fireworks at the beach. It was very nice even if quieter than usual. I don't post w/...
  47. This is really great.
  48. Amber is gorgeous - and these are a nice rich honey color.
  49. Don't be mad - I have very similar earrings and a ring that are from the 1980's.
  50. The earring findings are very nice - not many like this now. I've seen this type around 40's or 50's. Could the stone be chalcedony? I am not sure. I think these earrings are from somewhere near you.
  51. See more
