This past weekend I had the pleasure of visiting the Stella Pier Antiques Show in New York City. There were a myriad of beautiful booths displaying folk art, fine art, antiques, vintage clothing and vintage jewelry.
One of my favorite booths was that of Marcy Drexler aka – Little Shiny Objects. Marcy is a long time vintage jewelry dealer who consistently presents a gorgeous display of vintage Bakelite as well as an exciting assortment of costume jewelry.
I captured a few images that I thought you might enjoy.
Check out the incredible green and fuchsia necklace by Vendome and the staggering rows of carved and inlaid vintage Bakelite bracelets. I’ve been fascinated by Bakelite for many years and have always been attracted to the fun shapes and colors. I really think the appeal comes from the fact that it all looks like candy. Subconsciously, I probably want to taste every piece.
I should also mention Marcy’s collection of poodle purses, in the gallery above, which soon will be gracing the pages of Italian Vogue. Look for them at your local newsstand.
All in all a great booth filled with shiny vintage treasures.
