We made it nevertheless to Gananoque, Ont home of the Gananoque Flea market.
I scored 2 Eaton's catalogs from 1975 and 1976. Now let's see...I was 10 years old in 1975 and even if I remember some of the UGLY fashions, I had no idea how ugly it all was.
So basically it's an endless source of post topics!
Being a Pyrex maniac, I was of course, eager to find some. There was none.
Instead I found this...
Corning Ware galore!
Now I'm surprised they made so much stuff with the Spice'O' life pattern...A spice
cabinet? A spice rack, a letter holder, a paper towel holder?
I also find some pieces quite expensive for 1975. The 9 cup percolator was $21.95!
And what about the Corelle dish set at the bottom?
A 20 piece set was $37.95.
Ans the minimum wage wasn't that much in 1975 so that was a pretty big hunk of change for some dishes.
The patterns? Butterfly Gold, Spring Blossom Green and Old Town Blue.
