Vintage Thingie Thursday

Another Thursday has rolled around to make a visit to Coloradolady's vintage shop. You will never be disappointed when you stop by http://coloradolady.blogspot.com


The one that had these eggs was really selling them cheap.  Back in the depression days around 1932-1938 they sold for .29 cents per dozen.


Also, during those days, this was a modern "bathroom". Thankful for the advancement in that area.

Wow, that olde sign is fantastic! The outhouse is pretty cool, too. The "privy" as they call it at Drayton Hall in Charleston SC has 7 seats, with no walls between! Can you imagine? I prefer the one you have here. :)
Take care - Dawn @ We Call It Junkin

I love the sign. Can you imagine? That was just over a penny per egg! And, I do remember when there were outhouses here and there- xo Diana

I also remember when ground beef was fifteen cents a pound and candy bars were five cents!!

Wow----I remember things being that cheap... When I was in high school, I would go to a favorite restaurant at lunchtime and order a chili bun and a coke for a QUARTER... Crazy!!!

Hope you had a great trip...
Hugs,
Betsy

Your whole post brings back days on my aunt's farm, candling eggs and being sent to use the outhouse after playing in the muddy creek bed!

I don't remember the price of eggs being that low, but I do remember my grandparents' "Necessary", which was very similar to the one you pictured. Thanks for the memories.

Hi lovely lady.
I do remember my grandparents lake house having a OUTHOUSE I did not like going at night time my grandfather would tell me the wild dogs would get me. Thanks so much for your sweet comments on my Fall Tablescape. I see I do follow you.

Hi LV, I guess you are back home from visiting your sister. I know you had a lovely visit.

Love the egg sign. I remember when Bill and I were first married, $20. was good for a weeks groceries. Yikes, groceries are so expensive now. I don't even like to go to the grocery store any more. Wait...I never liked it but it is worse. HA!

Love, Jeanne

That egg sign is great. I don't even know what farm fresh eggs go for my -- my chickens don't lay enough for me to sell any these days.
