Linda and I had Friday off so we took advantage and went junking. It was a pretty slow day and I wasn't really excited about anything until we arrived at our last stop. I had picked up a few small items and was about to check out when I stopped and checked out the jewelry display. My eyes popped out of my head like some cartoon character. I asked the lady if I could look at this set of seven bracelets. They were very, very, very inexpensive. She handed them to me and said. "These are just some old plastic bracelets." The voice inside my head was shouting, "Are you kidding me. These are bakelite. The holy grail of all funky jewelry." I told her I would take them and then quickly paid before she could see my heart beating out of my chest. When I got to the car I did the rub test. Bakelite will smell like formaldehyde when rubbed until it gets warm. They all smelled!!! Who would think that sentence could be exciting. I had planned on listing them but I just can't help myself. I think I will have to wear them for awhile just for fun.
