    Happy New Year friends. All this year I kept hearing about coin shortages: "Please use exact change" or "Give us your coins, the bank won't anymore" or "no cash/coins accepted, plastic only ." So save coins or use them? I am not talking about old coins, I sift through and set those aside in yet another jar. But using old jars around my place - close enough to use - is keeping my "banks" at hand.

    Laura Scudder Nutty Grind peanut butter from Monterey Park, California holds nickels and dimes, circa 1930's.
    Lucky Joe Louis bank is 1930's Nash Prepared Mustard that had instructions how to turn lid into a bank. There are some online right now. This one came from a Missouri junk store a few months ago. He holds the copper pennies for now.

    I am also sharing this woven Camel cigarette wallet. Very hard to get a good picture. I am not sure how old this is. Maybe 60's, maybe newer - does anyone know? I've seen a few other examples described as "prison art".

    Happy New Year 1/1/2021

      HAPPY 2021, val97!!

      A delightful post to start the new year here with, I love the Camel wallet especially, wow what work on somebody's part must have gone into crafting that?!! :-) :-) :-)

      All the best, Tim

      Thank you Tim - I love the wallet. In the 50's gum wrappers were used to make long chains that could be hung as garland on trees. But these have a plastic coating so it doesn't feel as old. I have a few other woven items I'll have to share. Happy new year to you - Mary
    7. AnythingObscure AnythingObscure, 2 months ago
      Oh heavens yes Mary -- I myself did that (in the 1970's) enough to result with prolly 9' or so of woven gum wrappers...? That (and the shoebox still full of unwoven gum wrappers) no longer exists, but the memories remain, and your Camel wallet bounced those to the front of my mind again. I never knew you could do the same thing to make a wallet...?? <lol>

      ATB, Tim :-)

      Tim, now I'm thinking this makes sense as a prison art item. Where else could you get a large amount of cigarette pkgs? Yeah, from bars - but you have to be a bartender who collects the packs....dang I wish I had that much time. But, I'm also thankful I'm not in jail.

      Hi Kyra - Happy New Year to you too!

      That’s exactly what the wallet is, “prison art”. With very little to work with, empty cig. packs became handy for something to pass “the time”. I had a picture frame made by a family member ( won’t say who) that spent lots of jail time. ( no violent crime)
      I had a habit of throwing coins in a jar in my kitchen. Got tired of looking at it, rolled it all up and took it to the bank..$186.00!
      The Laura Scudder’s jar is something you din’t see anymore..way before our time...
      Very cool post Mary!

      Thanks Eileen for your fun comments - I wish I could remember exactly where the Laura Scudder came from....I think the last weekend get together with my sisters in Richmond, VA. I loved the bluebird.

      I also have a picture frame and a coin purse. They are not as cool as my Camel wallet because they are just plain. I got this wallet a few years ago in a N. Carolina antique store owned by the famous bakelite collector Charliene Felts. It was so cool to meet her and I knew who she was because she's collaborated on a bakelite research book that I have. Her collection of bakelite was so great. I couldn't afford but really enjoyed meeting her .

      It’s the love again because I love the containers

      Vynil - thank you, isn't it fun to find these old advertising items? Simple everyday fun things.
