    Over-dyed bakelite bangle. When I found it was lighter color but has oxidized to "butterscotch". It probably was sold as a set of 3. It's not a spacer because it's thick and domed.

    I found this 5/16" carved bangle in a box of "stuff" in Walnut, Iowa in 1988. The store was an old corner pharmacy/general store turned into antique store with many other town buildings (ie lumber store, women's clothing shop). The town of Walnut was bypassed by Interstate 80 so they reinvented themselves by becoming a tourist destination for collectors and now is called "Iowa's Antique City". I plan a visit home this summer and hopefully can do some shopping there!

    Yes, there is online selling in the Midwest - so jewelry isn't as cheap as I would like. Still I always manage to bring a full suitcase home from those trips :-)

      Very pretty item! I am getting quite fond of bangles now, although I don't wear them often. I do get moments when I succumb to them though. :) Thanks for posting this lovely one of yours!

      You're welcome - so fun to collect old plastics - please keep sharing your finds! I think you can tell I really love the old bakelite, celluloid, lucite and resin plastics. I appreciate your nice comment!

      Thank you Bonnie - I always find great things in the Midwest - Wisconsin, Iowa, Missouri - when I go there to visit family. Lucky for me my 3 sisters love junking too.

      Thank you Martika - I hope we can get there on this Sisters Weekend to see my mother and 2 brothers +families. Lot's of relatives....I always slip away to the junk stores. Another wonderful "antique town" is Perry, Missouri. All the shops are in old 1890's bldgs. and an old beautiful church.

      Thanks friends for the loves: Thomas, Kevin, Ken, Phil, betweenthelens, Manikin (you know) and Zilla :-)
