I'm in the middle of a long post about what we were up to this weekend as we gear up for Spring (finally!), but it's not quite finished. In the meantime, I thought I would entertain you with something that my lovely mother-in-law emailed to me this weekend.
She knows that I'm lover of all things old.
And I love this page from the 1934 Montgomery Ward catalog that she forwarded!
Back in the day, keeping a garden, raising chickens, etc., was a given. Everybody did it. Kinda makes you wonder how and why society changed so much. But it does seem that more and more people are going back to these traditions, doesn't it?
Let's take a look at what some of these products will cost you in 2013:
48" galvanized chicken feeder
1934 price: $0.59
2013 price: $28.00
Barred Rock chicks
1934 price: $2.20 for 25 chicks
2013 price: $3.00 EACH!
I wish we had those 1934 prices again, don't you?
