    Green is usually the cheapest bakelite or lucite but when your favorite color is green - like mine!! - then you buy 'em and you're sure to wear 'em anyway and everyone asks you where you got 'em and wants them! I made the charm bracelet from my stash of old green buttons. (solder those links - I've been at the club under a table when I thought I heard something fall.) Also in picture a great 2-tone hat pin, 2 lovely carved clips that I found in Silver City for $20!

    I like to wear my greens w/my 1950's fitted grey jacket - and of course on my denim jacket and yes w/my black dress and chunky black platforms...

      When I noticed the bracelets with the flat sides I realized I have more of these type of bracelets I could have sent you with the others.

      Thanks Karen - I plan to reshoot and redo this post. So nice of you to comment on this old greenery....:-)

      Still drooling - still green.

      Thanks Gillian - I have a story about the wide "end of day" spinach bangle 5th from bottom. I wrapped it up for a rockabilly girlfriend's birthday. When I greeted her at the restaurant table with "you will like my present" she bolted up and pushed thru the diners to get to the gift table, opened it in front of everyone and put it on right there. I love it when the present is exactly right and it went to the right new owner.

      Green is my favorite as well. A friend turned me on to Bakelite some years back an I have been collecting ever since. It’s addicting! A nice collection.
    14. valentino97 valentino97, 2 years ago
      Hi Broochman and thx! I will post the ones separately that I haven't already.

      Thanks also Anile, look forward to seeing your collection too. I really enjoy the old plastics!

      Wow, it's like a Bakelite store!
      I'll have one of each please...
      The Marbled ( givre) bracelets are to die for...
      Mary, You are the "Plastic Fantastic Lover"!!!
    16. valentino97 valentino97, 2 years ago
      Eileen, no I only have a modest collection. They look impressive posted together LOL. The marbled are very nice I agree. My favorite story of giving the right gift: My rockabilly friend's birthday party. As we kissed hello I said "you might want to look at my present over there on the table". She immediately did so, and loved it and put the wide bracelet (4th down). It didn't even match her outfit. Pretty great to give a gift that is right.

      Green is sooo wonderful! What a fantastic post. Would love to see your stach in real life sometime and to see YOU again!
    18. valentino97 valentino97, 2 years ago
      Thank you Elisabeth - I am a big fan of green as you know! Yes, we will meet again and hopefully look at our treasures together.

      Thanks for all the loves friends!
