Remember having your foot measured at the shoe store? Did you know this was called a "Brannock Device"? Remember when shoe salesmen used to measure your foot and bring you each box of shoes you wanted to try on?

McDonalds Cookies

tattoos sets from Cracker Jacks

Cracker Jack Tattoos-----this started my life long love of tattoos. No other "prize" in the cracker jacks box ranked w/ this one.

I had this exact sticker album and one in blue too. Lots of stickers -fuzzy, puffy, googly-eyed, satiny, scratch 'n sniff, shiny, iridescent...

My favorite sticker book! I still have mine. I still have this sticker album!

Holly Hobbie lunchbox! Total blast from the past! I had one of these!

cute holly hobbie lunch box and thermos. I LOVED Holly Hobbie growing up. I have a lunch box similar to this but it's orange

Almost everyone had an afghan like this.

Mama Wyatt (my grandma) would sit and crochet afghans to pass the time

Oil of Olay - I remember my mom and grandma using this every night. (glass bottles) now they are plastic.

when we moved into our house these things were in the guest tub and they had turned 2 cement .it took me 6 hours chipping at them with a spackle knife until my hands hurt, but i finally conquered them.

Bubble Gum Machine - My brother thought he'd make money off of us with his coin operated bubble gum bank just like this one. He didn't count on us figuring out Mom's button collection came in handy when we wanted a gum ball.

Slush puppies

OK this is not a current favorite thing but when I was in college there was this Darimart near where I lived and they had a slush puppy machine and I used to drink them at least five times a week. I seem to remember that blue was my favorite.
