WWII Era Work Apron

This apron epitomizes the work ethic in the US during the first half of the 20th century, specifically during WWII. This apron smells of the hard labor of the working class man and woman who busted knuckle on steel to give their generation and future generations a life of freedom and hope.

This apron has issues and I love each one. From the grease and oil which is present in touch and aroma, to the visible wear from years of hard, reliable use.
SOLD.

Totem Poles!!!

We have a nice selection of vintage souvenir totems.

The meanings of the designs on totem poles are as varied as the cultures that make them. Totem poles may recount familiar legends, clan lineages, or notable events. Some poles celebrate cultural beliefs, but others are mostly artistic. Certain types of totem poles are part of mortuary structures, and incorporate grave boxes with carved supporting poles, or recessed backs for grave boxes. Poles illustrate stories that commemorate historic persons, represent shamanic powers, or provide objects of public ridicule.

Horns From Nuevo Laredo

This is a old, great, folky, assemblage of horns from the town of Nuevo Laredo, Mexico. These were fairly common souvenirs back in the day. I believe this one is from the 1940′s. $150
