Just Like Candy

So, since Vixen Vintage is being so great as to help me get new followers (due to the GIVEAWAY in progress) I figure I should give you something to read.

Let's talk about my favorite kind of candy: Bakelite. Of course, the best thing about bakelite is not talking it - it is looking at it, and better - wearing it!

Here's my two newest THRIFT STORE Bakelite finds from yesterday - a total cost of $4.98, and I'm quite the happy camper. Of course, I'd really love to have the amazing pieces shown up above, but they're a tad more into the "luxury spending" ranges!


  1. i just don't understand how were able to find Bakelite for under 5 dollars! that is very, very lucky!

  2. Lovely colours!How lucky to find them so cheap,living in Australia i've got a snowballs chance in hell of finding bargain bakelite so i'll just have to keep my eye out online:)

  3. I love Bakelite...I was just swooning over a necklace made out of Bakelite poker game pieces at an antique shop :) The price woke me back out of my fainting spell!

  4. I love bakelite I found some pretty cheap about a year or so ago and turned them into beautiful hair accessories and they of course went real quick. Your finds are beautiful.
