Jenny and I were driving home from Cracker Barrel and we thought about going to the Brass Armadillo since we were in the area and the baby was being nice and quiet, but the problem with our Brass Armadillo is the items don’t change very often. So we spontaneously decided to road trip to Fremont, Nebraska about 30 minutes away. I had never been to Fremont before, but we went to four different shops there.
I picked up a 1943 calendar with tips for homemakers and a year-long weather forecast, a bar of Proctor and Gamble soap (it was only $3 so I thought, “why not?”), a couple of Nebraska State Poultry and Turkey Show ribbons, a copyright 1940 version of Parcheesi aka India board game.
I also found a Children’s Activities magazine from October, 1940. One page has an American flag with 48 stars on it. Another page has drawings submitted by children; their addresses are also listed.
Finally, I picked up another Saturday Evening Post, this one is from December, 1943. It has an ad with Santa promoting cigarettes and an article about the benefits of eating ice cream.
