Wordful Wednesday 411: Wordful Wednesday is like Wordless Wednesday, except WITH words. It’s for those of us that just cannot be wordless, no matter how much we try. Add my Wordful Wednesday badge to your post (right side bar under “WW”) if you really want to make me happy, and then add your post link to the linky below. Easy peasy.
My husband’s family has been in the Pharmacy business for 3 generations. His grandpa was a pharmacist, his dad is a pharmacist, and he is a pharmacist. They even have a local pharmacy that’s been in the family for over 40 years.
Although The Drug Store has been in Jeff’s family for 4 decades, it’s been in existence twice as long. The pharmacy was originally opened in the early 1930’s and even had a soda fountain back in the day.
I love finding old pictures of the store, but I love finding old “relics” even more, like this glass display case full of vintage over-the-counter medicine’s from day’s gone by. This display case has been covered for years by another display case, and when I went into the store the other day and saw that it had been revealed it was like Christmas. It was so fun to see all the old vintage packaging, complete with prices written on the box. There were even a few old Nelson’s Labels!
I’ve always been a sucker for vintage items. Sometimes I think I was born in the wrong era. And then I remember how much I can’t live without modern conveniences and realize that I definitely wasn’t.
I’ll take the internet and a washing machine and an automobile that I don’t even have to keep my foot on the break when I stop at a light, thank you.
What about you? Are you a lover of vintage items, too?
