A Mix of Miscellany from the Past

A batch of funky vintage hats – mens and ladies.

Two Hula Dancers - male and female

Two Hula Dancers - male and female

A couple of hula dancers – these knick-knacks were really popular during the 1950s and seem to be making a come-back.  This is the first time I’ve seen a male hula dancer, though.

Today’s kids learn to play digital games, but back when I was a kid, board games were all the rage, and they too appear to be making a come-back. This game (snakes and ladders) has been around from the victorian times, but young children still enjoy it.

This car probably needs no introduction – The General Lee from the Dukes of Hazzard.

A vintage pottery jug – while it resembles the “little brown jug” , this one is quite large.  So large you certainly wouldn’t want to heft this on your shoulder to drink from.

Give them an inch and they’ll take a foot…or a bunch of feet. Here’s a mix of measuring tapes and rulers from a variety of time periods – from metal tape mesures, to plastic to a wooden yard stick.
