Joe and I have been spending nearly all of our spare time going through lots and lots of stuff. Below are some photos of some interesting things we found this week.
When was the last time you saw a pair of nylon stockings with seams? Have you ever seen any? In the original box to boot.
Wrapped in their original tissue paper.
Do you remember when ladies used hankies?
Just like new, in the box.
How about an apron made with hankies?
Meanwhile, Joe found some interesting items in the garage.
Some handcuffs, from my dad’s days with the sheriff’s auxiliary and/or Lima State Hospital.
Two helmet liners and an Army bag.
Bless his heart, eagle-eye Joe found another Herb Miller Electric advertising item.
That key chain was in a drawer with some of my dad’s other favorite items, which included firecrackers and bottle rockets. Anyone who knew my dad knows how much he enjoyed setting them off and pulling pranks with them.
Finally, a lucky horseshoe.
It was our lucky day!
