    1955 - Naadkousen. Lastig om de naad recht te krijgen en te houden! En wat als er ladders in zitten? Mijn moeder gebruikt dan wel nagellak, of ze laat de ladders ophalen in een winkel op het Abeelplein.

When I was growing up my friend Dawn and I would were these and thing we were so Hot...

Nylon ! medias . Mi primer par de medias largas eran como estas. ¡Que dolor de cabeza se corrían siempre! Había que llevarlas a arreglar. Siempre había que tener unas de repuesto. En mi época los negocios cerraban el sábado a mediodía, si habíamos olvidado comprar medias, había que recurrir a las de mama,que siempre tenía.

corduroy gauchos! I had some like that in the late 70s. Wore them with my camel tan, suede high heeled boots.

Remember when this was the biggest problem you encountered all day?

stockings in a box...I had forgotten about this. I remember the early 60's before panty hose...the feeling of those silky stockings. They felt wonderful...but I hated those garter belts!

My Mom, Grandma and Aunts sat under one of these with curlers in their hair when I was little. I always loved watching them fix their hair.

So remember wearing these and having to call my mom or dad to constantly tie the straps.

Pluto Maxi-Push Puppet -You could buy them at Five & Dimes, what we called 'the Dime store.' Haha now my kids are thrilled with the Dollar store.

Brinquei tanto com isso! Quero um pros meus filhos! // Spirograph..many rainy days filled with this..

"Doing the weekly grocery shopping mid-1950s style. Oh yes, every women dressed up when she left the house, for whatever reason. To be seen in PUBLIC in anything else was an embarrassment and it was frowned upon." Screw that! I'm happy to live in an era where personal comfort trumps a public performance!

These definitely bring back memories. Our Nana always had these in her purse!

Coppertone - 1970...Oh yes, I too worshiped the sun...regret now though with all the sun damage.
