Kid's Size 28 1950s beaded souvenir leather belt Santa Fe, Native American style souvenir belt, Southwestern tourist belt, gift for kids

$32.00

Here we have a vintage souvenir belt from the 1950s to 60s, the kind that you could find at curio shops all over the Southwest and that your parents let you buy because it was practical and fun. You left the shop with rattlesnake eggs and Mexican jumping beans, maybe a maraca or a colored corn necklace, and one of these belts if you were lucky. This one has the words Santa Fe written in bead-writing, and so it's kind of special to me, being just a hair south of Santa Fe. It's small and the leather is pliable yet in good shape still. We wouldn't have noticed back then that it was made in Hong Kong, or maybe we would have and wondered where that was. Before Hong Kong became a hub for technology and things much more advanced than belts. It's a children's belt, so if you're a waif you're in luck. Or buy it for your kid and tell her about how you always worried about the little worm inside the bean and how it seemed to lose its jump by the time you got home from your trip.

Belt is marked size 28, and it measures 32-3/4" from the end of the buckle to the tip, with the nearest hole being at about 25" from the end of the leather, and the farthest hole being at 29". So perfect for the person with the waist between 25-29". In really good vintage condition, and it could have been not used much at all, in fact.

Because no matter how many memories we lose at time goes on, we never lose the best ones.
