Extra Extra! Bakelite Bracelet found in bathroom!

Tonight I was looking in the bathroom cubbard  for a hairbrush, when I noticed the bracelet my Dad had casually handed to me a few years ago. He had said I could  sell it or wear it. I couldn't decide what I wanted to do, so it has been traveling  around various baskets in my house since then. Until tonight when I sudddenly looked at it again and realized it was a rare 1920's bakelite bracelet!
I showed it my husband John who said, "Oh I thought maybe it was, but since you weren't taking care of it, I figured it must not be."-WHAT! (I wonder if he really did think that, or he is just thinking it now.)

I did the smell test and have been looking it up online. I found one that is similar on Ruby lane for over $200.
And so, since it isn't really my style-I will sell it!

Bangles, Bangles, Bangles

One of my favorite accessories is the bangle
Once we shed our winter layers these add the perfect splash of color and pull your look together. 7o's bohemian, safari girl, or punk?

Back in the day you didn't leave the house without a hat. Why has that culture changed? Maybe less things are dripping from buildings, or we wash our hair more? 
The look is in again! Sport a vintage hat or a current one, you are sure to get lots of positive attention and feel glamorous.
Here are some of our vintage hats. They are works of art!

Everyone loves a vintage bag!

A vintage purse can add the perfect finishing touch to your evening look.
Beaded, leather, clutch or handbag? You choose.

(We always have a good supply at Raspberry Beret!)
