About Bonnets2Bustles

Our Service Pledge
I strive to provide a variety of quality pieces of vintage bakelite, other early plastics, costume and antique jewelry at affordable prices. All bakelite bangles and bakelite jewelry are guaranteed to be authentic vintage bakelite pieces. Each piece of bakelite has been tested using either simichrome, 409, bakelite test pads and/or the hot water test. The application of the hot water test will be used to confirm black bakelite pieces. As a service to you as a customer, I will not sell fakelites (fake bakelite), reworked or old stock newly cut bakelite pieces.
About Us
I have been an East Coast Antiques dealer since 1975. I started out selling Vintage and Victorian clothing and accessories but then in the mid-1980s, I switched to selling vintage bakelite, other early plastics, as-well-as selling vintage costume and antique jewelry. I still have a collection of Victorian clothing and accessories. If you are interested in any items, please feel free to contact me via email. I may have what you are looking for.
