This is a public service announcement....
In September, I took a trip to Springfield, MO for a little vintage shopping with my best friend, Amanda. While on the trip, I found this cute little cherry dress clip in an antique shop. It was $8, had cherries on it so I bought it.
It had a little crack in it and since then, the little crack has caused a chip in one of the cherries and I can see what's inside. The cherries are made of wood, dipped in lacquer.
Since my trip, I have seen these things all over the internet, being sold as celluloid and on ebay this morning, I spotted one being sold as bakelite. Come on, ebay sellers!! Like I said, it's wood. It's still vintage, cute as can be and I adore mine but make note and don't shell out a bakelite price for these things. Thank you for listening to my rant.
