Bill's Country Store......

Bill has a room in our house that he calls his country store. He says I have taken over because that is where I have my computer desk. It is in the lower level of our house. He doesn't work at collecting things any more because he can't. Above is a set of scales with the weights. I remember weighing candy on scales like this at FW Woolworth's 5 & 10 cent store.
Rawleighs Liniment. My Dad sold Rawleigh products in his later years. This is some that is still on Bill's shelf.


This clock belonged to Bill's Dad. It is an eight day clock. Bill says he can remember it when he was but a lad.

Old bottles......



Old postcards from Bristol TN and Virginia.

Hi Clara, I enjoyed looking at Bill's stuff. I used to work at Woolworth's years ago and remember those scales. I love the clock. You know I have a thing about clocks. lol. Hope you had a good 4th. I like the bird and brook sounds on your blog, too.

Dear Clara,
It had been a few days since I had visited your blog, but I have caught up now, and really enjoyed my visit. I really enjoy all the pictures of collectibles of yours and Bill's. Your collections are quite interesting. Watching the "America's Got Talent" video brought tears to my eyes. I am a sucker for patriotic and family stuff. Thanks. Love, Ruby

What a neat collection. I love the old things that remind me of my childhood.

A lovely collection of sentiment for all of us, I love looking at old things especially things like these which would have been in everyday use and because they were, it is hard to find much of them intact anymore

Wow Clara---I love all of the OLD country store items. I remember the Woolworth's 5 and 10...

Does the clock work???? It is amazing. I have three old clocks in my home. They all work---and I love them!!!! If you ever want to get rid of that one, keep me in mind... ha

Have a great Thursday.
Hugs,
