We just came across these gorgeous wide vintage Bakelite bangles. We have been into Bakelite for over 10 years. First you need to know the Bakelite lingo with colors like yellow is not yellow it's mustard. Colors like Mississippi mud, paprika and creamed spinach were created to describe these vintage pieces. All of these bangles are 1.25" wide.
Collecting costume jewelry from the early 20th century can be fun and can change up any outfit. My wife gets compliments all the time when sporting her collection of Art Deco pins, brooches and bangles. The majority of jewelry today is made in China and is usually copies of pieces from the past.
Hanna Barbera brings back memories of Prime Time and Saturday morning cartoons. Many of these classic characters are highly collectible and sometimes hard to find. From The Ruff and Ready Show, Huckleberry Hound to The Jetsons and the Sci Fi classic Jonny Quest. All were staples for us kids growing up from the late 1950's through the 1970's. The Cartoon Network brought these great shows to Millennials during the 1990's.
Going to the Dime Store was a real treat for us kids growing up in the 1950/60's. And one of the items boys were always attached to were plastic army men and and anything that had to do with war and the space age.
