Nostalgic Things


Pat Riot

Recommended Posts

Here are 29 photos of items from yesteryear. I remember them all. I am not sure if I actually miss any of them. ;)
 
How many do you remember?
Do you have any to add?

This one has several items you don’t see any more.

#4 - I used to love those tables and chairs. If I could find a new set today I would buy them. 
 

#7 - We still use a crock pot, but it’s a modern one. 
 

#8 - I have one sitting in my kitchen on a shelf. Occasionally I use it. I don’t care what anyone says, perked coffee tastes better than drip. 
Think about it. What do you call someone that’s all milquetoast? A drip. What do you call someone that vibrant and full of life? Perky:D

@Tennessee Trapper Tom I just found these filters and ordered them on Amazon. I ran out and couldn’t find them in stores anywhere.

Except for number 19. I don't recognize it.

 

I have several of those things, and almost bought one of those aluminum percolators of the yard sale yesterday. If it had been stainless steel I would have.

I remember, owned or lived in houses/apartments with all those items.

 

I still have and occasionally use items 5, 6, 7*, 8*, 10, 15, 17 and 21.

 

I still use the exact model of item 7 on my nightstand. 

The exact model of item 8 was on my gals nightstand until last month when it finally died.

 

Thanks for the trip down memory lane.:)

I remember them all, but we never had 19 & 22! Repaired many of them over the years!! Both as a job and because I don't throw anything away!

They take the acid out of the coffee. Makes for a better cup of coffee.

Thankee, y'all.

 

That was way before my time. Mama's washing machine was always square.

 

And with nothing in that picture for scale, I thought it was some kind of tabletop appliance, like that popcorn popper or the Crock-Pot. You know, something from the '70s or '80s. Like those other pictures.

That's where the old saying " don't get your ti.....um apron ya apron caught in the wringer" came from.

My Mom used one of those wringer washers until I was in 6th grade. 1971. After that we went to the Laundromat. Those damn wringer washers were dangerous. If you got a loose shirtsleeve in those wringers they could pull your hand / arm right in. They didn’t have a safety cutout.

Washing machine with a wringer arm.

My mom had one until 1962 when she finally bought a modern washer and dryer. She still used it for heavy blankets or throw rugs etc. even with the new washer.
