Today's issue of Keeping It Old Skool is for all the Women who owned one and all the gay men who wanted one. The infamous Plastic Charm Necklace/Bracelet. Lol. Lord, I remember these like it were yesterday. Yeah, they were the Pandora bracelet of today. **coughs**
Girls went going crazy over these things, some even fighting tooth and nail for the rarest ones. Hell, I saw girls beaten up over these cheap plastic chains.
As you can see in the pictures, it consisted of a plastic chain link with a few charms. You would have to buy the rest or trade them with your friends. The charms would vary from boom boxes, instruments, caricatures to kitchenware, tools, toilets, bells and whistles. You name it, there was a charm for it. Can you imagine if Ebay and Amazon existed in those times? It would have been a hot mess!
No, I never desired one, but I did like playing with my sister's :-). What are your early memory of these little charms and chains?
