I collect many things - old plastics, jewelry, textiles, graphic arts and other neat things. I also enjoy road trips and nature's treasures found along the way. I am not a seller, shouting out to a lot of CW right now. (Read more)

  1. Thank you friends for your loves - aura, BB2, Jenni, raven, manikin, kwqd, fortapache, Phil, watchsearcher, Kyra, Thomas, Kevin, vintagelamp and Mike.
  2. keramikos - I need to pick up Gore Vidal again. Recently I watched a movie on Thomas Wolfe and Max Perkins, so now I am looking for Wolfe's books on audio. My eyesight is not good anymore. As for cha...
  3. I am sorry I am so late in responding - Daisy1000 - YES, I always have a few vintage collector "picture books" on my bed because I am a light sleeper and can look through a few pages without tiny prin...
  4. I love this dramatic pin, very nice - and how big is it?
  5. Yes, I agree with our friends and also how large is it?
  6. What size is it? Great color combination.
  7. Artist piece combining old clasp and Interesting glass beads, plus the teeth!? These look like vintage glass beads. The red bead is a signature of some type, but I can't remember exactly what. BTW, ...
  8. Correction the first album was 1971. Thank you ZZ Top for your amazing music. I have loved it all my life too. LOL
  9. Douse that light.
  10. RIP Dusty Hill. Love ZZ Top, have seen them a few times in 90's-2000's when they had great bling and hair and costumes and bbq and Texas politics... BUT, my favorite song and I had this first album "J...
  11. Phil - I am sorry, you can delete my comment - I just meant I would love to be the one who will inherit these amazing treasures.
  12. You can edit your item and pick Fine or Costume if you have time.
  13. But the mystery remains!
  14. Hard to say exactly what these are. If they are old 30's bakelite plastic, then they've been restrung which happens often because cotton thread deteriorates. Originally there would have been small dis...
  15. Lori, you should delete from fine jewelry. It isn't in that category. I know a lot about old plastic. I am a bit surprised that you don't look at the items I've posted to see what I know and have col...
  16. Wow, a doll barrette!?
  17. Thank you for the dimensions.
  18. Make me think of fresh air!
  19. Yes, Watchsearcher is right. It's a Victorian lingerie pin from 1880's to about 1920 or so. These little pins are very sweet to use if you have a charm, a button, a doo-dad that you want to pin to you...
  20. Can you give us who don't collect Sherman some dimensions of this bracelet?
  21. Lori, I hate to do this but your brooch is not "bakelite era" or "bakelite" or fine jewelry as you have posted here on CW. Those are terms I've seen so often from sellers online trying to convince buy...
  22. Phil, I don't like buying outside of the US for the same reason.
  23. I forgot to love these sweet tweets. I love bird pins as we all know.
  24. I especially love the Magic Bunny brooch. Fun finds as usual!
  25. So wonderful! Thank you for sharing these. I wish I was your sister.
  26. Agree with Jenni and Eileen and I want to add thank you for giving a little idea of the price of these. We can pay less or more, but it's nice to get a feel of what they are selling for.
  27. Sweet Tweets!
  28. Keramikos - I am very fond of Edith Wharton's "House of Mirth" and of course "The Age of Innocence" - they are a wonderful insight into Victorian life. When I was in high school the required reads wer...
  29. Eileen - thank you for sharing your memory of your Mother - I take all of my jewelry off too until it is cooler. XOXO
  30. Bill - thanks for remembering that I LOVED this book 4 years ago and you knew! My wonderful boyfriend doesn't get collecting and so often I feel like I'm an addict hiding my obsessions. LOL, which is ...
  31. Bobby25, thank you for your comment and it's sad they were dumped, but great you rescued. I know it's popular to take engraving pages out and sell them one at a time.
  32. keramikos, I am a fan of Edith Wharton! And also Virginia Woolf but I know her time frame is about 30 years later? "I have lost friends, some by death, others by sheer inability to cross the street."
  33. Yes, here it is - how can 4 years go by so fast? I am very happy to be the next owner of this great old book. It is staying with me for a long while, then to my youngest sister who is a wonderful Gode...
  34. keramikos - thank you as always for your amazing research. I love that there is an archive to look at these page by page. I love having the book though by the way.
  35. Agree with all the comments and also pictures of the backs, signatures.
  36. Yes, I agree that back photos are needed. Gorgeous!
  37. I am glad they arrived so fast and they look good too - the seller included my message, and I repeat "happy bowling days ahead" from Long Beach, CA to upstate New York, to you in the Bay, CA!! It woul...
  38. Starry Starry Pug!
  39. Yes, this is so nice! What a great find. Old books and maps! I wonder if Lewis and Clark referred to it. I am sure it was in Jefferson's library! Bill, thank you for the wonderful books you sent me...
  40. Wait a minute Daisy, you almost sent me the Mary brooch!!! Thank you because I watch for Mary jewelry and this actually doesn't come up often. I guess there are many Mary's who buy this before I find ...
  41. Silversmith designers and shops from Mexico use styles over and over. Some made very well, like yours.
  42. This isn't my style but it says Dynasty and Dallas and it is really wonderful!!
  43. Way to go Eileen! So great she found the seahorse for you, and finding 3 out of 6 for you is also great. I love all of them.
  44. Very nice ride Dave. I hope you will be careful with your new toy. Sorry, I sound like an old lady driver, yeah, I do drive pretty slow.
  45. Daisy - well, as you can guess I love that Mary brooch. One came up on ebay and I couldn't afford it. That's okay, there is plenty to go around for all of us. Also, about your heart pin. I think that...
  46. Oh Yes Bill, You are right - I Love this!! I guess we should discuss off CW our particulars. Thank you for thinking of me. It's so wonderful!
  47. keramikos is the best researcher!!!
  48. You might know more about these than we do, please provide as many memories from your Dad as you know. Thank you.
  49. Daisy, I also agree we need more CW posters! Not just for Sherman, but sharing all their costume jewelry obsessions. I get a bit bummed out when only signed items get comments and loves. How easy is i...
  50. Yeah julius, we are pretty cool.
