I can remember well...:)

Diner menu from Woolworth's five & dime lunch counter in the Note the prices. I used to love to have lunch at Woolworth's on Church St.

Captain Kangaroo...with Mr Green Jeans, Moose, Dancing Bear...

Boy, I'll say, I loved Captain Kangaroo every morning. I remember when I was young, one time my mother was wanting to dress me for the day and I said."Not in front of Captain Kangaroo".funny how I remember that so clearly.

PRELL Shampoo 1960s: the "pearl" at the bottom of their bottle of shampoo just like the awesome dinner plates that came in a box of laundry detergent contrast the striking difference in the excellence of those days and the mediocrity of today.

Prell Shampoo- Remember the pearl?in their commercial they would sink a pearl in the shampoo .

Wore them almost every day under my dress and also under my sweater/blouse and skirt.  **Girl's couldn't wear pants to school back in the day... (my day.)

Slip - always worn under your clothes. Winter and summer. And oh my, that nylon could get really hot, hot, hot and I still wear a slip under dresses every time.

Bandstand began as a local program on WFIL-TV (now WPVI), Channel 6 in Philadelphia on October 7, 1952. Then it was hosted by Bob Horn.On July 9 of 1956 the show got a new host, a clean-cut 26 year old named Dick Clark. Airing it's first national show on August 5, 1957.

RIP Dick Clark & American Bandstand - I watched this every Saturday morning

We thought we really had something. We could lock away our private things.

Vintage Jewelry Box Ivory Cream Gold Script Edges Brass Lock - Mine was in pink instead of ivory and I still have it!

Mr Magoo--I used to love watching this show as a kid.

there was often a short cartoon before the main feature at the movies. I remember it was often Mr Magoo

Gum wrapper chains...we made as long as boyfriend tall

Gum wrapper chains-Loved making them and finding the wrappers so I didn't have to literally chew all the gum. Sad that gum doesn't really have wrappers like this anymore.

My Mom wasn't good at breading hair, so she put a part in my head, wrapped one of these around the end of my ponytail, tied it in a bow and sent my off to school.  Memories.

Yarn Ponytail Ties I wore these in my pigtails all the time until I got the brilliant idea to get my hair cut into a shag. My hair wasn't long again for yrs!

Still have one :) I love the smell

cedar boxes ~ these were given to every graduating Senior girl by local furniture stores in the hope that we would buy our Hope Chests at that store. Every girl had to have a Hope Chest.

Bobby pin curls

Comb damp hair Part into small sections. Wind each curl around your finger smoothly. Pin each curl in place with a bobby pin. In the morning remove pins and gently finger comb your hair.

You are too young to remember colored toilet paper...

Yes, stores sold pink TP in the to match your bathroom decor. I remember colored toilet paper.

and our parents thought this was expensive.......

Cost of Living in Although, If I remember right, the milk and the gas might be a little higher than they were in our area. I'm also pretty sure that the minimum wage was lower than that also. I remember making 65 cents/ hr in

Couldn't wait for the Sears Christmas wish book to come out every year so I could go thru it and circle every single toy in it for my "Christmas List" for Santa!

We couldn't wait to get the Sears Christmas Book every year. My brother & I would sit for hours circling the things we wanted. I remember circling in the wish book too.
