Vintage Canning Lids
Just look what I found as I am going through a truck load of fabric, trims, and other misc, goodies from Grandma Powell. Two original packages of canning lids and one is marked with a price of $.98.
I ask you is that a bargain or what?? A dozen wide mouth caps and screw lids for 98 cents! I have known her since I was 18 and I am 64 now and she has never canned anything since we were introduced. She had long since left the farm and was a gal working for the state of Indiana Excise Department.
I surely wonder how old these really are. Wide mouth jars are a much newer innovation so surely within memory. Just a stroll back in time!
PS: It may well take me another week to get all of this organized.
