Italian Bracelet Charm for…Marshmallow Peeps?

You know, I remember when Italian charm bracelets first came out. They were kind of sleek and tony, like a Ferrari or possibly a string of silver Chiclets. Then Betty Boop and I Grandma crept in, and now they have devolved to the final indignity — the Peeps™ logo charm.

Can there be so many heirs to the Peeps™ fortune that they can support sales of this charm? And if not, who buys them? And is that glitter in the enameled marshmallow representations?

My search for a Krusty the Clown Italian charm led me to this non-Italian charm bracelet featuring 37 gold-plated Simpsons characters. Now this would be tempting, if not for the $200 price tag.

Hey! I clicked on the enlarged picture at the Bradford Exchange’s site, and Maude Flanders is missing! WTF? And can anyone tell me who the disco guy is, eighth from the left?

    You don’t know Disco Stu???

    Maude died, so she can’t be a character, even as a charm 😉

    Have a lovely day! 🙂

    Maude DIED? Clearly my attendance has been spotty.

  3. Amy Says:

    Yes, Maude died. But I don’t think that’s any reason to leave her off.

    And yes, that’s Disco Stu. Most notably, he purchased a great jeans jacket from a yard sale, once, that had “Disco Stud” on the back of it, notably missing the “D.”

    “Whoa! this jacket was MADE for Disco Stu!” He talks about himself in third person a lot.

    Maude was in tons of episodes and doesn’t get a memoriam, but Disco Stu shows up at a *yard sale* and gets on? That is so wrong.
