    Found these bakelite brooches at a sale today. I love them and want to wear the red one like a bowtie. Thanks for looking, Julie

      Hi nutsabot, It is difficult at first, but now I have a feel for it. What I do lay the piece on a paper towel and spray a little 409 on it and it will turn yellow if bakelite. But normally I don't carry it with me, so I never overpay! The red one was $20 and the black one was $10 and the seller was certain and she has seen me before and knows that I know everybody!!! :D

      Do you ever go to flea markets where the seller has all bakelite? Go talk to them for awhile, they know everything there is to know about bakelite! =)

      Julie , sorry -I don't know how I missed these gems! Great prices on primo bakelite colors - love them - and great research and comments! Good advice to Ken regarding research and talking w/sellers. KEN - there is a LOT of bakelite where you live. I hate saying that out loud and on this site but it is true. You'll find it. If I take a road trip thru your state. I've find them. Oh heck, maybe it's okay to give secrets away. Not everyone likes old plastic.

      Thank you Val! Yes, I'm certain not everyone loves old plastics, but we do :)
