Thrifting again!

As you probably know by now, I love to go thrifting! I go at least once a week, if not more! I picked up a few more Monopoly games that still have the tokens and with these and the ones people have so generously sent me, I think I'm set on those for now.
Last night, I found a wonderful gray agate oval tray that I think I'll use out on my deck for a while, a big chunky plastic ring and a surprise that was sent out to a friend today.
This morning while out thrifting, I found this nifty item, it's a Sweater Guard, a souvenir of Crystal Cave in Kutztown, PA.

This is the most interesting part, made from real butterfly wings?????

Exactly what part is that? Would the wings be inside there?

This next item is what it's all about, what I live for, what I love searching for!!! Check out this pin!
Big, beautiful BAKELITE!!!!! Can you believe it? Yep, found at a thrift shop! I can hardly contain myself. :o)

I'm in love with that Bakelite pin. I don't know how you find these things. It's gorgeous. The sweater guard is another find, especially being from Kutztown. :o).
