And surprises found stateside...

Wow, interesting week! I was out and about today and hit my favorite thrift store for books. I had the day off from work, so getting there on a Friday is almost unheard of.

Look at what I found for a whopping 49 cents! Talk about a blast from the past. I remember my aunt getting them this way. I don't remember my mom ever wearing them.

On the bottom part, at about 1:00 I can see a somewhat cut-off date that looks like it says H80-84RQ. Which I'll guess means Hanes, the years they used this labelling and RQ for regular/queen.

How funny that the purchase likely coincided with Mr PH's post.

Oh, I found this article about the ending of the original packaging. I'm a bit of a treehugger, so I am thankful for the change. (Oh why don't modern companies get with the program? Says she who loves canvas grocery bags and doesn't buy ziplock bags and Saran Wrap.) But at the same time am thankful that I was able to find this for the Mr.

Thanks for sharing these images with us. I like those L'eggs eggs. It's neat to see inside the box.
