The person who sent me these lists prefers to remain a mystery to us! That only adds to the fun of it, I do believe.
Here’s what they had to say about these found offerings:
Hi – the lists are from upstate New York area – but I live in central Virginia (east coast usa) in Richmond.
So now, after an online search, I know what a salt lamp is, and what its uses are. I never knew such a thing existed. Do any of you own one of them?
Somehow, judging by the rest of the list, I don’t think the alcohol on this list is of the imbibing type.
I did wonder why one item is circled, two others are enclosed in open ended rectangles. Maybe they are to be found in different shops?
Does anyone use Dr Teal’s cream? Is it any good? For some reason, that made me think of the Watkins men who used to drive around rural areas in Canada, selling all sorts of goods to the housewives. I remember the big bottles of vanilla and also Watkins ointment that was used for every darn cut or bruise we sustained. And, the liniment which left a faint aroma surrounding you for days!
I guess the ingredients for most of their products has changed through the years. Here’s one interesting article about this old company. Be sure to find out about their ‘trial-mark’.
Funny how a shopping list can lead you down memory lane.
