  1. It’s a like a gem of your home archive. Amazing that you still have it. I think it was not bad to cooperate with this company from Atlanta. I don’t know the prices in USA (especially during the Great Depression) but I like to read the names of all these items. Really nice thing!

    • I found some of these things in my mom’s possessions after she died. Some of the items listed seem very inexpensive, but there was little money to buy with in those days. I wonder about men’s hose. 🙂

      Thanks, Jola.

  2. I like seeing things like this. Pockets knives retail from .25 to .29. Seems like a great deal to me.

    • Yep, I like this kind of stuff; there was a lot of it around when I was growing up but much of it was tossed when my grandmother died 1n 1972.

  3. Very interesting indeed.

  4. Thanks, Tammy.
    I was hoping to find a jobber’s list for women’s items, but none were with the papers.
