PEACE, LOVE, and HIPPIES

Items from the hippie era have become very popular collectibles. The hippie period lasted from about 1967 till maybe 1975. Many of the items that were sold in stores during that time period had flowery and psychedelic designs that often said Peace or Love and are easily recognizable.

It all started in 1967 in San Francisco with the legendary Summer of Love. By 1969 it was in full swing across the entire country and the Woodstock Festival became a monumental event. Eventually, it spread worldwide. Hippie fashions and values had a brief, but major effect on culture, music, television, film, literature, and the arts.

All of our items are guaranteed vintage and dealer priced.

#BEADS0207 - Large Deep Ruby Colored Round Incised Handmade (Lampwork) Bead
Price is 25¢/bead. Vintage very large deep ruby colored handmade bead. They have a spiral incised on the surface. The size varies. Average size is nearly inch and a quarter in diameter, plus they are over a half inch thick. Because they were handmade (also known as lampwork beads), no two are alike. These are very uncommon. They were in a crate with made in Japan glass, so that would be our best guess. They are from the 1960s, or more likely, earlier. They are a bit dirty. Just rinse them off in water and they are in new unused condition.

They are in unused condition, and striking. Like most of the others in this find, so far as we can tell, there are no other examples of these to be found anywhere online, or anywhere else period. They were sold as hippie beads in the late 60s from a bead store near the Haight Ashbury area.

$0.25

#BEADS0025 - 11mm Blue Japanese Crumb Glass Bead
40¢ per bead. Vintage 11mm Blue Japanese Crumb Glass Bead. While the glass was still hot, these beads were rolled around in various colors of tiny glass crumbs giving them a textured surface. These are unsold old stock from a warehouse on the West Coast. They are made in Japan and were imported in the late 1960s during the flower power hippie craze. They are all handmade and so the sizes will vary a little and they may not all be perfectly round.

#BEADS0163 - Large Handmade Terra Cotta Indonesian Trade Bead/Pendant from the Hippie Store - Cube
Vintage 1.3 inch square cube terra cotta Indonesian Trade bead. Sizes vary a bit, and the holes are about 3/8" across. These were hand made and no two are alike. All have incised decoration. Some of the original paperwork was with these. They were made in the Philippines originally and sold in Indonesia. This group went from the Philippines to California. The documentation is all pre zip code, so they are likely from around 1960 or earlier. The store in California we got all this stuff from, grabbed a bunch to sell to the hippies along with African Trade beads. The hippies wore them as beads and pendants. Terra Cotta is very delicate. The fact that they survived at all is amazing. They were never used, although most will have some imperfections or small nicks. Part of that is the way they were made and part of their charm. Unglazed terracotta beads this old are hard to find.

These were sold in the late 60s from a bead store near the Haight Ashbury area. In 1967, the hippie phenomena dominated the area and the demand for beads was huge.

#BEADS0023 - 8mm Orange Glass Japanese Millefiori Flower Bead
15¢ per bead. Vintage 8mm Orange Glass Japanese Millefiori Flower Bead. The word "Millefiori" is Italian and means 1000 flowers. To make these flower patterns on the beads is labor intensive and requires hand cutting a hot cane of glass that has been patterned. These are unsold old stock from a warehouse on the West Coast. They are made in Japan and were imported in the late 1960s during the flower power hippie craze. They are all handmade and so the sizes will vary a little and they may not all be perfectly round.

#BEADS0028 - Vintage Very Large Smiley Face Bead/Decoration
Vintage very large 2 3/4" wide smiley face bead/decoration. The front is a heavy plastic and the reverse is tin. There are 5 different colors. The more you buy, the more colors you will get. The boxes they were in were marked Japan. They have two holes in the back for stringing, and a notch between them. You pulled the string or wire down in the notch to keep them from moving. There was probably a type of pin you could use with them too. I remember seeing these decorating belts back in the day. They had multiple uses. They are old unsold stock from a bead store on the east coast that closed 30 some years ago. The tin on the reverse has a little tin patina which adds to their charm. The Smiley face was invented in 1964 by cartoonist Harvey Ball. Buttons and items like this because very popular during the hippie days and peaked in 1971 when over 50 million Smiley Face buttons were sold!!!!
