Woolworths. Guess they all looked the same. This looks like the one in Plainfield, NJ. This is where Christmas shopping got done every year for me. I couldn't afford anything better on my tire changer salary of when I washed pots for a living.

A boy would give his girlfriend his class ring to "go steady." She would wrap the inside with angora to make it fit. Sometimes she would wear his (angora wrapped) ring on a chain around her neck. YEP! This is just like my Dad's from 1944.
Wrapping my boyfriend's class ring in angora yarn so it would fit when we were going steady oh yeah! Now that boyfriend is my husband and I still have his ring! Lovinnng it! Wrapped their rings in mohair yarn to match our outfits. " I DID THIS TOO!!!!!

LePage's Glue with rubber top - the bottle on the far right was a staple on our school supply list every September
Trip down Memory Lane
So remember this. I also remember how the glue left on the rubber top would harden and crack the rubber and then the bottle of glue was rendered useless.
Liquid glue. Remember when the rubber glue tip would get hard and you had to get the dried glue off the opening after each use. We had it so hard when we were kids!!
MUCILAGE Liquid Glue - went through so many bottles of this.
Before “glue sticks”, there were bottles with rubber dabbers, which would get hard and crusty from dried glue ...
Liquid glue. I used this in elementary school.

pin curls.comb damp hair and part into small sections. You’re going to pin each curl with a standard bobby pin, so sections must be small. Wind each curl around your finger smoothly. Pin each curl in place with a bobby pin.Gently tie a silk scarf around your hair before going to bed. In the morning remove pins and gently finger comb your hair. Letting pin curls fall loose from a side part was one of the sexiest 1940’s hairstyles.
