Happy Vintage Fourth of July
I have just a few vintage Fourth of July items in my holiday collection. I really got into the old boxes of sparklers for awhile! An old red white and blue telephone with the cord (ha ha), American Ball Blue bluing, True American Hand Lotion, an old paint box tin with Uncle Sam and friends, my folk art Uncle Sam from the shop days, and my most recent acquisition- the Dennison flag seals still in their original package! My favorite item has to be the set of paper dolls featuring a child-like Uncle Sam and not one piece has been cut from the book! A permanent patriotic/military display stays up year 'round in our library. The celluloid photo of the man is Tim's dad! Happy Fourth!
