Flipping through albums in a record store...
Record Store, 1970, 1980, Memory Lane, 70S 80S
Flipping through albums in a record store... We spent hours a week of our high school years in record shops and bookstores
Flipping through albums in a record store... on saturdays my mama gave me 2 quarters, lots of money back then. My best friend and I went to the movies and got a bag of popcorn AND drink with one quarter; the record shop was on the other corner. We walked there, listened to a lot of 45 records and bought one with the other quarter. So much fun :)
Flipping through albums in a record store...I have favorite LP's to this day, of course the LP section is now the DVD section
Flipping through albums in a record store... My friends' parents owned the record shop, so I would go there while my mom shopped for groceries at the mall.

45 Records, 45 S Records, 1970S Childhood, 1970S Record Player, Rpm Spindle, 1970'S Record Player, Rpm Records, 45 Inserts
45's records had a large hole in the middle. And you couldn't play your 45 rpm records without those little yellow plastic inserts.
45 rpm records.. I always popped them through a few times before I finally got them in right..."Eye of the Tiger", my first album!!!
45 records--couldn't wait to go to town and buy the latest hits on 45's! Then when the artists had enough hits for an album--we'd buy those too! Still have a bunch of my albums stuck off somewhere.
I had a record player and a wonderful collection 45 records...thus the need for the 45 inserts
Spindle inserts - used in my first 45 rpm record, which was Itchycoo Park by the Smallfaces!
45's with plastic adapters to play the 45rpm record on a 33 rpm spindle.
45 record. Omgosh! Great memories - crocodile rock!
45 record -with the little plastic middles!

Elvis Presley dies at 42 on August 16, 1977. Elvis was never one of my favorites. That's not why I'm re-pinning this. This is significant in my life because my mom died one month before Elvis, also at the age of 42 (I was 14). Sad times....

Paper bags used to be the only option when you went to the grocery store.
Paper Bag Crafts, Brown Paper Bags, Happy Bags, Grocery Bags, Paper Grocery, July Paper Bag
Paper bags used to be the only option when you went to the grocery store. BUT we recycled them in the best way!! There were so MANY uses for the brown paper bag!!
On July 12, 1859, the paper bag manufacturing machine was patented by William Goodale in Massachusetts. And what a wonderful invention the paper bag is! It's useful for limitless purposes and makes a great craft item!
Paper Grocery Bag... Used To Be The Only Kind Of Bag Stores Had. And, we cut them up and covered our school books with them.
