    From the fifty-cent box at a Perry, Iowa junk store! 2 nice thick 3/8" round marbled or swirled bakelite bangles from the 1950's. However, in recent online searching (ha ha ha! loads of bakelite sites, how fun is that?) these are similar to Avon 1970's "Color Go Round" bangles. They use the same chemical formula from Dr. Baekland's 1930's wonders.

      Thank you Hel1 and Aura for your loves - I appreciate :-)

      Thanks Bonnie - it was a large "mall" store and most of it was junk but digging a little - so many treasures! Too bad I had to travel 1,800 miles for .50 bargains :-)

      They're so pretty !!! Only 50 cents ? I wish we had a store like that here. :)

      Well....take a little road trip around your state. That's how I found this. A few years ago visiting relatives, I didn't want to take interstate 80 from Des Moines airport. Now we always stop in Perry on the way to western Iowa where my family is. There is no way to find these places listed online :-) And, it's sad when I drive through and see the junk stores I loved have closed down.

      Both colours are so good Mary, but that green, yum!

      Karen - Yes! I didn't have that particular green bangle and I love it!! I almost passed up everything in the .50 box because it was filled with crap except for 4 bracelets :-)

      Thomas - ha ha ha - now I have that song on my mind :-)

      Thanks friends for the love of bangles and The Bangels: Kevin, Tigra, Judy
