I loved using this. I remember trying to think of things that needed labels. You could buy black, blue and green as well as red and Daddy used it to label the spines of photograph albums.

DYMO Label Makers who was the KING of DIY. I have such fond memories whenever I see a vintage DYMO label.

Tape from toy cap guns. The blissful smell of what?...cordite? I inhaled with glee whenever my brother had a gunfight. In the back garden rather than the OK corral.

Tape from toy cap guns. I remember hitting this with a rock on our driveway! Oh the glorious pop.the smell of sulfer.

Whenever you went to buy shoes, the salesperson ALWAYS sat on one of these to fit them on your foot! Don't see this much anymore! Don't even see much of the salesperson.

The shoe salesman sat on this and you put your foot on the front to try on shoes at the shoe store. ~~ "The Talking Tree" Childrens Shoe Store

Proper old Monopoly pieces. I always liked the iron. Not sure why because I am not a devoted ironer!!! But I found it pleasing and there was never an argument for it, unlike for the racing car without which my brother refused to play.

remember when the Monopoly pieces looked like this? - I loved Monopoly when I was a kid :) My brother would ALWAYS win.

Cartridge ink pens which always leaked and blotted your school work and got ink on your clothes

Cartridge ink pen-used all the way through college and beyond. Had an ink stain on my right middle finger. I still prefer to write with real ink and a good pen nib!

Licking the beaters. One of life's little joys.

Remember licking the cake batter from the large mixing bowl? And we lived to tell it! Oh my gosh, how did you find that picture.i remember the icing turning red after my hand got caught in the beaters.

Remember this? So familiar. Our exchange was Burgh Heath but I can't remember the number though I still can recite my Granny's and Aunt's numbers from over 50 years ago.

Rotary Dial~ Phone numbers used to be according to letter, e., Lincoln 54321 So the phone number was 545 321 and that's why we originally had letters on our rotary phones.

Before the internet we had Pen Pals. Mine was called Jane Argyle and she lived in Birkenhead. We each went to stay with the other and she lent me my first Georgette Heyer for which I am forever grateful.

Before the internet we had Pen Pals. I got a Pen Pal from school, and one from a show called The Big Blue Marble :)

Mummy collected these. When the car was stolen she was crosser about the completed books in the glove compartment than about the car! After all the car was insured.

Remember these into the mid Shops gave them with a whole variety of goods.you stuck them into boks and exchanged them for a variety of household goods at 'Green Shield Stamp Shops'. There were also Pink Stamps.
