WAY Before White Out

Just had to share one of the vintage oddities I have
in my collection of, well, vintage oddities.
Before microwaves, before the Internet, before cable TV.
Before White Out and correction tape.
If you're old enough to know.
Your old enough.
heehee

Additonal note:

Linda mentioned erasing the carbon copies too. I HAVE a box of carbon paper too!

What obsolete items do you collect or hang on to?

Yes, I'm that old! I loved my little eraser with the brush on the end. And you had to erase the carbon copies, too! It was a hard life.

Looks like I am old enough, too!
I think I still have one of these around here somewhere!!

Sadly, I am familiar with that!!! Altho, I think mine had a red eraser....

Oh, gosh, I had completely forgotten about those! :) I also remember the typewriter erasers that were shaped like a pencil and had the brush on the end! My, my, my...how far we have come! ;)

I had forgotten all about these! By the time I had a typewriter of my own, I had those little white tape-like things for erasing, but I remember my Grandma using this! Thanks for the memories!!

I have one of these from my Mom, it is blue. I loved my type writer as a kid. I gave it to my sister when I went off to college - I got a new one - she loved it. Wrote me stories and sent them to me. Loved it enough to write 30 plus books...LOL

Now if that is not a work of art, I adore those brush erasers N!
Soon tags in clothing will be obsolete ... keep thinking I should collect those more vigorously ... teehee... in my spare time ;)

You do not want to look inside my junk drawer ~ trust me on this one!
But I do remember those erasers, growing up before computers!!! But you were just a babe!
