    I recently visited family in Iowa and stopped at Perry which has a few great low-priced junk stores, an unchanged 1960's Ben Franklin w/loads of fabric, and the beautiful mission-style Hotel Pattee.

    Found this carved 3/8" marbled bakelite bangle in a .50 box of bracelets. Also bought 3 others. I think this will go well with these:

    Or as in pic 3 with the 1" wide marbled, etc....

      Thank you Hel1 and Aura for first loves :-)

      Thanks Bonnie - they do look great together. I was a little flustered when I put everything on the counter to pay. "These 4 bracelets are from the $5 box....duh, I mean the .50 box"....

      Thanks Ken - it was a great find! I don't think ever worn, perfect, no scratches and very close to original color. I tested it with simichrome and a lot of yellow residue came off on the cloth which meant it had not been cleaned in a long time.

      Thank you lentilka! Do you like roadtrips? Stop in the little towns along the way? I once found amazing turquoise nuggets at a weird dirty GAS station in Arizona. :-)

      Thank you friends for loving pea soup green: Fort, Mike, Bijou, Jlmam, Rick, Clementine, Hel1 and Pebble.
