#CS530 - Early Renwal (Renwal Toys) - Vitex Plastic Strainer on Display Card
Click the picture to see a larger more detailed image. These are plastic strainers on a 6 3/4" display card that say "Vitex Plastic Strainer Will Not Rust or Tarnish" "A Renwal Product made in the U.S.A.". (Renwal info is in the lower left corner of the card). These are very early plastic from the late 1930s when plastic was considered the new miracle product that wouldn't rust. This is a super rare item. When Renwal first went in business in the late 1930s, they started out as one of the very first makers of plastic housewares such as this one. By 1940, they converted to a toy maker. Renwal is highly collected, and every Renwal toy collector needs one of these to represent how the company started. These would appeal to Renwal and early plastic collectors. The shipping box they were in had their original Broadway address on it. The cards have some minor curling (the one in the picture is typical), but they are in great condition for their age.

Says "It's the Real Thing". These are paper sleeves that were dispensed from old Coke machines. The refrigeration in the old machines made the bottles sweat, so you put the bottle in one of these sleeves to keep them dry. Some people call them bottle bags, but the are really sleeves. Dated 1932. These are in exceptional condition. These are from a huge collection of Coke items a friend had who searched old bottling plants and hauled this stuff out many years ago.

#ZZA148 - Complete Set of 16 Different Exhibit Supply Radio Arcade Cards For Single Women
Vintage complete set of 16 Exhibit Supply Radio Cards for Single Women. These are 1 1/2" tall and picture a guy on the front with a radio message for the woman receiving the card of the reverse. The ones pictured are typical. For example, "My own true love life is not worth living without you. Come to my arms my darling, my heart hungers for you". The machines that dispensed these for a penny were only made from 1923 - 1931. Exhibit Supply often continued to make cards for their machines that they would sell to the penny arcades that used them for awhile after they no longer made the machines. Gauging by the original brick these were wrapped in, I'd say these are likely an old version from the 1930/40s. The gentleman pictured are all very period 1920s guys. These are very rare and unusual. Complete sets are nearly impossible to find. These were in original bricks marked Exhibit Supply that were found in storage at a penny arcade up in the northeast. Very few collectors will have a complete set of these and we've got them priced right.

Vintage complete set of 16 Exhibit Supply Radio Cards for Single Men. These are 1 1/2" tall and picture a girl on the front with a radio message for the man receiving the card of the reverse. The ones pictured are typical. For example, "Mr. Wiseguy: You're not half as wise as you think. Talk less and spend the berries more freely if you want me to warm up". The machines that dispensed these for a penny were only made from 1923 - 1931. Exhibit Supply made these and sold them to the penny arcades that dispensed them. These are a very old version from the 1930s. The ladies pictured are all very period 1920s women. These are very rare and unusual. Complete sets are nearly impossible to find. These were in original bricks marked Exhibit Supply that were found in storage at a penny arcade up in the northeast. Very few collectors will have a complete set of these and we've got them priced right.
