Odds and Ends

Jenny and I went antiquing a couple times in the last few weeks and got a small smattering of things.

We got a box that socks came in.  And since you couldn’t exactly Google lyrics to songs you heard on the radio, magazines of lyrics to popular songs were made so we got some of them.

And finally, a pack of 36 birthday candles from the Standard Oil Company.  Because the box says Chicago, my research tells me this is from the Standard Oil Company based out of Indiana.  The original Standard Oil Company was a monopoly founded by John D. Rockefeller, but was broken up into 34 separate companies in 1911 because of an antitrust suit.  The Standard Oil Company of Indiana was one of these offspring.  Anyway, pinning the decade on these is a little iffy, but they were only $1 and the style is right.

Total spent today: ~$13
