Fun Find

Our home's previous owner was the farthest thing from a pack rat I may have ever met, so even when we first saw the place the rooms she didn't use all the time were practically empty. I didn't expect to find much when we moved in, but I did buy a few old pieces of furniture from her and was amused by the paper she had used to line what is now Gabe's dresser.

My best guess was that this flyer came from either the late 70's or early 80's.
I do remember attending roller skate nights at my old school...

Gotta love the shades!

Look at those jackets!

Gone are the days of cassette players and polaroid cameras...

Super short gym shorts! $1.99!

Funny, I don't remember my friends wearing cowgirl hats on the swings, and... do they even make that kind of swing anymore?

I saved the best two for last:

Rockin' the 'stash in that $4.99 shirt...

and super cool in all denim and a cowboy hat!

Thats an awesome find! I remember Bradlees and when the flyers had sketches of people and not pictures! How funny!
