Do you remember POP-IT Beads?

Ok, now I know I’m dating myself. Every one girl, teen and woman wore plastic “Pop-It-Beads” jewelry in the late 50’s into the ’60s. I’m not sure if they ever came back in hot fashion colors. I haven’t seen them… but these were fun! Adjust the strand to the length you wanted. Mix and match beads. This necklace is a deluxe, three strand with clip.

    I LIVED for Pop-It beads as a kid! I had them in every color but the pearlized pink were my absolute favorites. I can hear the sound of them snapping apart just talking about them! I never had a three strander though.

    I LOVED “pop it” beads and bought them all the time whenever I went to Woolworth’s. I love the orange color. Where did you find these?

    Pop Beads were popular when I was a kid in the early 80s… though ours were pretty much universally produced in those awful neon colors. I still wear them sometimes though.

    Found these Pop-It Beads at the Women’s Club Rummage sale last summer. In fact, tomorrow morning is the first spring rummage sale of the season. Gotta get my mojo moving again. Hoping for variety at a fair price up one roof! Allee, Denny, everyone, what department(s) do you hit first?
