Vintage 10" tall colorful plastic bags say "Elsie Brand Fudgsicle Family Pack 4 for 25¢" "Made by the Borden Co. License from Joe Lowe Corporation New York 1, NY". The price and zone marking would date these to the 1950s. They are old unused factory stock in excellent condition. They may show a minor crease here or there from sitting all these years.

Circa 1920s or 30s.

#BEADS0153 - Unusual Matte Finish Cigar Shaped Japanese Millefiori Bead
Price is 50¢/bead. Vintage large cigar shaped handmade bead. The lengths on these are fairly consistent at about one inch. The diameters vary more. They are all cigar shaped with a millefiori flower pattern and a matte finish to the glass. The shape and matte finish are very uncommon in millefiori glass. Because they were handmade (also known as lampwork beads), no two are alike. The "Made in Japan" stickers were still with them.

They are in unused condition, and very detailed an interesting looking. 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. 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.

#BEADS0202 - Group of 10 Very Old Shiny Emerald Colored Venetian Tube Bead
You get 10 for 80¢ (that's 8¢ each). Vintage 26mm (1 inch) long thin four sided emerald colored shiny Venetian tube beads. These are incredible. Still brightly colored and found in unopened wrapping. They are from the early 1900s. Most of the early Venetian beads are very small. These are really long and very useful for making things.

Here's the incredible story. In 1898, the Societa Veneziana Conterie Consortium was formed. It was a group of 16 bead makers who put their beads in one place so they could be sold by one sales force. Some of the stock was old when it came there in 1898 (these are those)! In recent times, the consortium was dissolved and the remaining 400,000 plus pounds of beads were sold to an American Indian Trading post. We were able to get ahold of a good quantity of the oldest types (the wrapping confirms the are pre WWI). All were made between the 1800s and 1920. They are an incredible bargain.

Back in the day, when a new movie was going to play at the local theatre, there would be a guy who would run around town tacking these things on bulletin boards, telephone poles, fence posts, or anyplace else where they might be seen. Because most were outdoors, few have survived. Some will have small edge tears or roughness, but this is true of all paper movie broadsides, and they can easily be trimmed for framing. Although, a few small imperfections kind of adds to the look with these. Colors vary. We got them from the estate of famous dealer and friend Bob Secrist. He found them in the storage area of an old theatre up in Northeast Ohio.
