Retro 80s Clothes, Part 1

Yup, I admit, I had a pair of lavender Jellie Shoes. I think I even had the Jellie bracelets to match.

Yellow Lid!!!

Hershey's Syrup in a can---the only way it came. Poked two triangular holes in the top with a bottle opener. Had a yellow plastic lid. I couldn't wait to be a grown up so I could buy these cans and drink them!

I remember these gum pieces!

Remember the Smell?!

mimeograph machine This was how the teacher made copies. In school, everyone called it the ditto machine. If the paper was still a bit wet when you got it, the ink would rub off on your fingers. I can still smell the ink :)
