I recently remebered trading those plastic charms with my friends at school, And clipping them to that gaudy white necklace of mine..
Any one know where I can find one of these? I'd really like to have a nice assortment of charms too!

We were talking about this in another thread.  Don't remember which one.  You can get them on Ebay or buy from online boutiques, but a necklace like the one you pictured might run you $100 at a boutique, and you'll have trouble winning the auctions on Ebay, because boutiques are buying them up.  Who'dathunkit?

I don't know what happened to mine.  Maybe when my mum goes through my boxes in the garage before they move I'll come across them.  Wouldn't that be bliss?

yeah. eBay seems to have tons of these. I'm always looking for cute plastic charms from the 50's and 60's and I keep running into these. They can get pretty expensive on eBay though.

i might have some left. i'm not sure. i was going through my old craft boxes the other night and saw a lot of plastic stuff, although i may still have some in my jewelry box.

i'm bound to have a couple. i used to clip my turquoise plastic shovel onto my bookbag zipper in high school...because i was a grungy pseudo-riot grrrl.

a turqouise plastic shovel?!?!?

AAhhhh!!! I TOTALLY forgot about those! I had one that I absolutely adored.... wonder what ever happened to that thing... I will definitely have to dig through my boxes of junk stored at my mom's house someday for those.

Oh, I had both the tennis racket and phone in the photo.   My favorite was a little penguin but he only had one flipper.

Do you remember the bigger version of these that you could put the plastic buttons on?  I had 3: a heart, a bear and a phone.  The phone was the only one that would hold 8 buttons and my name has 8 letters.  Found it the other day with my girl scout sash.  Sorry, I can't find a photo.

Ooh!  *jumps up and down*

Circa 1980-something, no less.  Smiley  (No idea where my red chain went, though...?)  I loved those things...and had no idea that they were scoring so high on eBay.  Hmm...*contemplates nostalgia versus empty wallet*
