      How lucky can you get?
      In a junk store? I'm telling you I have to start hitting the thrifts around here.
      I just never find anything...
      This is beautiful classic black, and to think it's nearly 90 years old!
      I'm so glad it wound up with our "plastic fantastic lady".
      Good going Mary!

      Jenni - I love this bangle, the price was reasonable, not as cheap as I like but when I travel, I splurge a bit. Have 4 other similar carved tubes in different colors - looks great with them. The area is full of warehouses made into art galleries, pubs, a skate park, Some of the artists contributed to the grafitti - very colorful, but I wanted to blur my face a bit. LOL

      Ivonne - thank you! I actually approve of this photo.

      Eileen - yes, in a big junky, dusty warehouse. Same place I got the stamp box. It's not easy to find "cheap" black bakelite. I am happy to have it for awhile before it passes on to someone else.

      Phil - thank you - in the world of collecting bakelite (1=best-5=good) this is probably a 4. But adding a bunch of these tubes together makes them special.

      Judy - thank you! I liked this photo and felt okay to share it. Yes, I love the bangle!

      Thank you friends for loving bakelite: Vnyl, Fort, Hel1, Gudrun, foseatme, watchsearcher, aura.

      Classic beauty!

      Thank you Elisabeth! It's not as nice as your wide black carved bracelet, but what I can afford because black goes for $$$. Understandable because black is classic like you said. XOXO

      Thank you AnnaB, Vynil33rpm, worthit for your loves.

      Thank you friends for your loves: Sean and truthordare :-)
