Vintage Gordon's Jar

I remember when I was a little girl, there was a small family run general store about a half mile from our house.  Things were much safer then, so I often walked to the store to pick up an item or two for my Mom, and if there was a nickel or dime extra, she would let me get a bag of chips or a candy bar.  The store owner would reach into a jar just like this to bring out a bag of chips or crackers.  

 Do you remember these?


Does this bring back fond memories for you?


Until a couple weeks ago, my husband had used this jar to hold loose change.  When he was driving long distance he would get lots of change which he would put in a sock inside his suitcase.  When he got home, he would empty it into this jar.  The other day, we decided we would carry the coins to the bank to have them counted.  So I grabbed the jar and placed it high on the corner cabinet for safe keeping.  This jar originally belonged to his Mother.  

Vintage at its best! 

So happy to share my vintage jar
