It came! It came! About a week ago I ordered this lovely 1940's Rex Fifth Avenue Flapjack Compact from a seller on Etsy. It was actually an exact replacement of a compact I had purchased at a local antique store about a year ago but sadly lost not long thereafter. I just love the dainty little design on the top and the fact that the compact is so big. I'm just so glad to have "it" back!

Some fun history: This compact dates back to the 1940's, during WWII. The company was able to meet war restrictions with this compact by creating a non-metal case. Made in the USA. Hooray! I'm a happy girl.
