Bangle Storage

First of all I want to say Eid Mubarak!

Moving along.... I was at my friends house and I couldn't help but be starstruck when I saw her bangle rack as I am rather obsessed with organising. I immediately took some photographs and wanted to share them with you.

It was given to her as a gift from India.



The whole thing is made out of wood with detachable bars. This one fits 4 rows of bangles, 2 on each side.


I have found some bangle racks on google but they seem to be rather expensive. There are various colours, shapes and sizes available. Do you know where I can get something similar to this? I have been advised to go to Green St.... If you have seen anything similar, (pretty) please let me know!

Hey hun I have one thats similar altho mine is acrylic and holds 8 rows of bangles..I bought mine in Mauritius.. i will take a pic and post it either on the comment section of this post.. or on my blog!

You will definetley find them on Green Street, the best shop to go would be 'Bees' because they are a bangle store!

You could try their website.. but I can't seem to find it on there..Although they definetley sell them!

Eid Mubarak to you too hope you have a wonderful day tomorow..

This is just ideal for bangle organisation...
I 've seen some bracelet/bangle racks on ebay, but none of them are this pretty...!
Great item to put on a vanity dresser too! Hope you find one!

How good a carpenter are you? Perhaps you could make yourself something similar... or rope in a friend with some woodworking skills!

MsEclectic said...

Hi babes. I got mine from pakistan but i know you can get them from here but it might be a touch tricky. Have a look in Green Street but if you dont find it there you can also try The Broadway in Southall. If that fails you can try Ealing Road in Wembley. If i had known you wanted one i couldve got you one coz my cousin just came back from Pakistan. Let us know if you find one. xx

su-pah said...

cool! i have two of these but hauled them back for myself from pakistan.
i actually watched while the craftsman made mine too and charged hardly anything.
unfortunately i don't know anywhere where you can find them in england, especially not around london.

Saira said...

Hey!

I bought about 10 of these back from Pakistan a few years ago as gifts. I shall see if I have any left in the loft if you like!

Eid Mubarak!

Muhsine said...

@mouldy fruit well you have given me a great excuse to go to mauritius :) lol. thanks for the names of the shops, if i go to green st i will hunt it down! x

@shifa thats a lovely gesture but i couldnt let u do that for me. thank you though :)

@laurylou wow thanks :) but i was too late for that one, but theres loads there thank you x

@Les yeux marron yay £10 sounds good :)

@the style pa not a very good one, but i shall see if i can make something similar :)

@Saira thanks that would be great but i couldnt :) xx

Check on Ebay for a "T-Bar 3 Tier Stand"
They can be made out of clear acrylic or velvet. They also come in different number or tiers, or rows.
I recently got one for my necklaces that had just one bar and it was pretty cheap.
Good luck!

Hi everyone,

I was just passing through and came across this thread relating to bangle stands. I realise that this originated some time ago, but I can imagine that your bangle collections are still growing.

I work at Bees on Green Street and we do indeed sell bangle holder storage units. Unfortunately, we've not displayed them on the website yet, but are working on it.

We specialise in two main sorts. The first is a two-holder bangle box and the other is a three-holder box. They are made using special acid free acrylic materials which helps ensure that your bangles (particularly the ones from Bees!) actually last longer. We use traditional bandhani designs and are available in some lovely colours.

If you'd like more information please contact us on info@shopbees.com

Thanks guys!
Keep up the good work and I hope you're all a fan on Facebook (search for: 'Bees (www.ShopBees.com) and Twitter (ShopBees).

Hi I hope you're well!

I have the same bangle rack which I purchased several years ago from Poshak Mahal in Green Street. Like you everyone who comes to my room is fascinated over it and to be honest I love it as it keeps my bangles organised and in great condition.

Dont lose faith... I believe if you cant find it we can make it at home!

Take care
Rahima

Жил на свете Дом.

Дом как Дом, на полу Паркет, сверху Черепица, в общем вполне обычный Дом.

Паркет нес на себе Мебель, Черепица защищала от дождя и Дом был вполне счастлив.

Но как- то раз, пролетала мимо Ворона и присела на Черепицу почистить перышки.

Сделав свое дело и увидев кучу перышек она хотела быстро улететь, но увы – это была воспитанная Ворона (издержки воспитания). Ей так не хотелось убирать за собой, что она заговорила комплиментами: «Что за чудесный пол под ногами! Какая красота!»- и быстро ретировалась.

Черепица вначале хотела возмутиться, но сильно засмущалась, потом загордилась, а потом задумалась и потеряла покой.

-Я здесь на верху, в любую непогоду, а Паркет внизу, в тепле.

Его моют и натирают воском, а меня омывают только дожди.

А ведь я тоже являюсь для кое-кого (причем очень воспитанных) полом.

Значит Я и Паркет одинаковы-.

И Черепица объявила Дому ультиматум: – или равноправие полов(один день будет полом она, один Паркет) или она уходит крышей Монастыря.

С тех пор Дом перестал быть счастлив.

Когда полом становилась Черепица, то ее крошила Мебель и все кругом цеплялось за округлые неровности. Паркет же разбухал от дождя и терял свою прочность.

И даже уже в обычные дни (как в старые, добрые времена), Черепица уже не могла защитить от дождя, сквозь многочисленные прорехи в дом попадала влага.

Черепица крошилась, Паркет разбухал, а Дом ветшал.

А Мебель так и провала их - сильный пол и слабый пол.

Что с нее взять, ведь она просто Мебель.
