I have an old Victrola 78 wind up record player. I am very proud of it because it is a unique and well preserved item. One day an older lady came in to my restaurant and said "What do you want with that old piece of junk?
We threw out a few of those years ago".
A friend of mine grew up in small town Quebec, on the family farm. When her family started making more money than mere survival, in the 1950s, they splurged on brand new formica furniture. They got rid of all the "old junk" by burning it in the woodstove.

My grandmother married for a second time to a bachelor farmer (63 and never had been married,) so she soon went on a spending spree for new furniture, and (gulp) burned all of the old stuff in a bonfire on the back lawn... 50-100 year old antiques worth more than $75,000!!!! Her new husband, Don, nearly killed her after only having been married for about a month!

She had NO sense of value for ANYTHING!!! When she died she still had dozens of dresses and dozens upon dozens of shoes that had never been worn. Talk about a spend-thrift!

That looks like a Club brand .. though I never seen one bare

I consider myself "the Queen of Vintage".

I use, as a matter of daily use, an antique fountain pen; Have at least one antique oil lamp in each room of my home; Keep time by using a 110+ year old mantle clock; And I drag around a 58 year old body that is quickly turning to dust!
