They are classic puzzle toys from that time period. The parchment packages are wrinkled up from sitting so long. The toys inside are perfect.

#BEADS0151 - Irregular Shape Handmade (Lampwork) Colorful Bead - Japan
Price is 40¢/bead. Vintage very colorful blue, brown, and black handmade bead. These average about 1/2" or so in diameter, but the sizes vary a little. The number of side varies too. Somewhere between eight and ten. Because they were handmade (also known as lampwork beads), no two are alike. These were still on their original strings with "Made in Japan" tags. They are unusual.

They are in unused condition, and fantastic. Bright colors. 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 came into the store around 1967.They were sold as hippie beads 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. The owner of this store put out the call that he wanted all types of beads that were either colorful, large, earthenware, or had mystical significance. Some of the items that he brought into the store were much older, and we will note them in the listings. The hardcore hippies wanted glass or ceramic or earthenware, so that is what most of these items are. The lucite stuff was for the fake hippies. The demand started slacking as the hippie phenomena died down and by the mid 1970s, they started selling gold chains and disco related items instead. The hippie items were taken from the front shelves, and stored in the back. The newspaper they were wrapped in was dated 1977, so that's when they put them back there. The most striking thing in the store is an old display of huge African Trade Bead necklaces from the 1800s. They were even selling those sort of beads to the hippies. One of those necklaces will run you about 2 grand now. That place is a real time warp. You could still smell incense around some of the boxes and I kept hearing Jimi Hendrix and Jefferson Airplane in my head. Just amazing.

#BEADS0207 - Very Large Heavy 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.
