Seeing Red: Bakelite and Celluloid Bangles

Red bakelite and celluloid bangles

Speaking of Scarborough — and I swear this is my last Scarborough-related post for the week — Other than the Joe Fresh Fuchsia lipstick, I only made one other purchase in the suburb that often sleeps. I picked up a red marbled bakelite bangle (pictured top right) for 99 cents at the Value Village on Victoria Park and Van Horne. It a sort of octagon shape which works well with bunch of celluloid bangles that I’ve collected over the years (also pictured above). In fact, last week I was thinking of selling those bangles at a yard sale until I bought that dress from Old Navy and kinda started getting back into red.
