  1. Yes very nice, probably is Navajo.
  2. Because you have a label, you might know more than we do about this compact. There are some very good groups on FaceBook and they would enjoy this. I like this one: Antique Purses, Compacts and Ladie...
  3. And I loved your article featured on CW!
  4. I don't think this is old. The color variations of the serpentine stone (not a true jade) reminds me of items like this I've purchased at GemFaire and Tucson in the past 10 years that came from China,...
  5. Yes Lori! He's ready to go. Thank you for commenting.
  6. Eileen - thank you, and it's sad that so much is unsigned for us collecting maniacs. Do you think this could have been an earring? Whatever, yes I love it and have some vintage rhinestones (somewhere!...
  7. https://www.costumejewelrycollectors.com/vintage-costume-jewelry-research/costume-jewelry-marks/the-history-and-marks-of-coro-jewelry/
  8. 1940's? Love it being a birdiac. Beautiful graceful design.
  9. Great comments and research on this lovely bird.
  10. Great color!
  11. Not signed and great and truly vintage!
  12. Sorry I missed this. Lovely quality! Any more info you can give about this?
  13. This is from the 50's-60's. I have researched although this is not a signed pin.
  14. This is unsigned, as we know most plastic jewelry was not signed. I am a little bummed that when I post my bakelite on CW similar items for sale online get higher prices. I thought I would comment on...
  15. Is this from the 1990's?
  16. 1980's maybe?
  17. Phil - actually, this is a rug, thick weave and the right size that is popular for the tourist market. I have been down to Mexico and bought a few that were not as nice as this.
  18. Thanks everyone for your loves - Scott, kwqd, dav2no1, Phil, Thomas, Vynil, Kevin
  19. Thanks Jenni - it was a very nice sunset on the beach. I hiked further north in Palos Verdes along with Many Hikers! Some parked at Trump's golf course but most of us further into neighborhoods. I'll ...
  20. Thanks Fort - it is a cool place to live. Despite looking out at the oil refinery island. Sad that our building put up this black metal fence so we can't enjoy our private patio down on the beach any...
  21. Designer piece? I did some vintage bead research but I couldn't find this pattern. Mystery.
  22. Thank you dear! I can't believe I have 21 loves but probably because of the designer attributes.
  23. Glass teardrop maybe?
  24. Hi Kyra - Happy New Year to you too!
  25. Bill - thank you! Well...everywhere in the state of CA could put LA to blame for depleting their water. Salton Sea is an ancient ocean bed - over 200 feet below sea level so water would find its way t...
  26. Maybe lucite? Or horn? These have a nice shine! Great quality also with the chain. I love them.
  27. Oh yes, the picker who grew to run the Grand Ole Opry! I loved his music and collaborations.
  28. These are so nice - and what a great price, way to go Cokeman1959. Agree w/Gillian most thrift stores still closed here in LA, CA too. I looked at shopgoodwill.com a lot, but the prices, shipping and ...
  29. Love this and can you give us timeframe. 1940's? Beautiful color.
  30. Really gorgeous vases! What time frame or maker info do you have?
  31. I gave a fab 1940's shaker w/chrome top to a friend in San Diego when he opened his bar. He didn't think much at the time but his bar was 50's theme and I'm sure he grew to love it.
  32. Thank you Clockerman, Kyra, vynil and Sean for looking and loving these amazing places along the Arizona hwys!!
  33. Sean - thanks for your love of this old wonderful Arizona place.
  34. Thank you for your loves on these old wood treasures - vynil, Kevin, Phil and Sean! Lost a friend's love six o one?
  35. Tim, now I'm thinking this makes sense as a prison art item. Where else could you get a large amount of cigarette pkgs? Yeah, from bars - but you have to be a bartender who collects the packs....dang ...
  36. Beautiful images. And special since you've had them a long time.
  37. Thank you Watchsearcher for your love.
  38. Jenni - thank you! I have some pictures of the refuge. Actually 3 different places - all are Sonny Bono Refuge on the Southeastern side of the Sea. In normal times there is camping and ranger talks, b...
  39. Fort, you and I are doing road trips, kicking the covid bug in the A*S (burro)! Joking a little, I respect those who stay home. I am going to share my latest right now, not nearly as colorful as Oatma...
  40. Tim - maybe it's time to start turning in pennies. But, I am sure you will look carefully through your hoard - there might be some precious coppers. HNY to you too!
  41. ha ha ha that's punny! thrill on blueberry hill....
  42. Thank you Tim - I love the wallet. In the 50's gum wrappers were used to make long chains that could be hung as garland on trees. But these have a plastic coating so it doesn't feel as old. I have a ...
  43. Way to go Tom-Tom batting at the RCA dog. Happy New Year Thomas and family.
  44. Very interesting - what are the dimensions please.
  45. Eileen - hiking and road trips are good ways to get away and be reasonably safe! Elisabeth - yes, isn't it a wonderful present? Share - hello! Have you posted your necklace and clip earrings? Do...
  46. ha ha Jenni! So true about our plastic payment world. But I'm resisting. Fort - Happy New Year! Thanks - Watchsearcher, Thomas, dav2no1
  47. Thank you Scott - yes, the jars are pretty great. Happy New Year!
  48. I love Doobie Brothers, but not this. I didn't care for Michael McDonald. Made the music too poppy and ruined it for me. Just my opinion. Happy New Years!
  49. Thank you Vynil - I think you know all about these.
  50. Happy New Year! Love the shaker!
