I bought a huge stack of vintage papers (there was other fun stuff in the pile and I will share that with you later) for $10.00 the other day and look what was in there....receipts from the late 1800's with the most beautiful penmanship. I wish I could write like that....don't you?
Look at this one above...it says drugs, medicines, books, wall papers, fancy goods, toilet articles & etc. Boy, I wish I could step back in time to go to that store to check out the fancy goods and wall paper. The receipt from the photo below is 1849, I think that might be one of the oldest items I have.
Lucy is calling me as well as five loads of laundry that I need to get caught up on. Have a great day.
