    This weekend, I attended the Gatsby Summer Afternoon, hosted by the Art Deco Society of California. The idea is to re-create an elegant afternoon 1920s party like the ones Jay Gatsby would host in F. Scott Fitzgerald's famed novel. Everything at the party, from the clothing to the cars, had to look or feel like the time between 1920 and the '40s pre-World War II.

    This is my favorite item on the vintage grocery cart. It reads:

    Premium Remedy For Relief of Female Weaknesses: Flooding, Irregular & Painful Menstruation, Misplacement and Falling of The Womb.

    A.D.S. Pelvitone

    Contains 16% alcohol

    A Vegetable Compound That Tones and Strengthens the Reproductive Organs. Reduces Inflammation of the Ovaries.

    Price One Dollar

      I have this unopened bottle. In the box. Any idea of its worth?

      That's really cool. I have no idea what it would sell for, though.
