This catalog is dedicated to the memory of Zane Shaffer. He was a pioneer in this field who recently left us. A lot of you have likely crossed paths with him. He was, arguably, the largest dealer in our type of merchandise on the East Coast. His family sold us a large lot of his inventory with the hope that his items will find good homes with people who appreciate them. You will see a lot of them over the next year or so, and we will mark them as such. Here is a note from his family "Whether he was gettin' his road warrior on traveling to antique markets in places like Shupp's Grove or buying/selling online, he enjoyed every minute of it. He held a very special place in his heart for the people, the places, and 'the old things'. It's really good to know that his collection will reach all the folks that had the same passion about them. We truly hope you enjoy them as much as he did."

#TY587 - Joke Pencil Gag - Made in Japan - As low as 50¢ each
Vintage 5" wide sealed paper envelope contains what looks like a golf pencil. It's very realistic. The "lead" is made of rubber, and so bends when someone tries to write with it. Says "Joke Pencil". "Looks like a real pencil, but has rubber instead of lead." "Made in Japan". These are the old paper packages they used to use before plastic. Unsold old circa 1950 store stock that we recently recovered from a warehouse in Northeast Ohio. Excellent condition. This type of humor harkens back to a time when we were more easily entertained.

#ZBOT134 - Dr. Blumer's Laxal Remedy Label - The Baby's Friend
Click the picture to see a larger more detailed image. Vintage 4" tall "Dr. Blumer's Laxal" label. Says "Laxal The Baby's Friend". These are from around 1900 when a lot of babies died from opium/morphine addiction caused by teething and quieting medications. The Pure Food and Drug Act had not been passed yet, but because of public outcry other medicines were brought out as a substitute.  This is one of those. It doesn't list what was actually in it (as was required by the Pure Food and Drug Act of 1906), but claims it was Non-Alcoholic and contained "no Opium, Morphine or other habit producing drugs".  Says it was "A common sense remedy for Baby's complaints". Makes me wonder what they did put in it. Found at the factory many years ago.
