Antique Graphics Wednesday – Grocery Store Price Tags and Receipt

Today we’re taking a trip to the grocery store of yesterday for Antique Graphics Wednesday with some antique price tags and a receipt.

I’m including quite a few of these so you’ll have lots of numbers to choose from.

Last fall, I bought an antique receipt register that was
an absolute beast.  It weighs a good chunk of a ton and was filled
with the most terrific inserts that are “clipboards” for holding receipts.
There was a whole stack of receipts under all the clipboards,
and all of them were “Cora’s” receipts.  Apparently, she ran a tab each week
at the grocery store.  Some receipts show payments she made, deducted from her total
grocery bill.  You can see the hole where the receipt was stuck onto a receipt spike.
I sold all of the clipboards, except one that I kept for myself.
I used a bunch of the receipts to “frame” a space in my office/outbuilding.
Sadly, the spray adhesive I used didn’t work well, so the paper isn’t
sticking and I need to re-do the pages again…someday…

Hope you enjoyed these!

Blessings,
Angie

  1. Hi Angie, I’m so happy that I came over from Pieced Pasttimes because your very cool industrial candle holder had caught my eye. I wouldn’t have been able to leave that great rusty piece behind as well. Using it to create a candle holder was an awesome idea.
    Thank you so much for the lovely price tags and the great raven graphic! I’m sure I’ll use them soon in some of my creations.

  2. Wonderful graphics. I just purchased some like these from an Etsy shop and will be using these also!!

  3. You find the coolest graphics to share! The receipts remind me of my father-in-law’s hardware store that he owned for 40 years. It was the old fashion kind with creaky wooden floors. He has passed away but we have saved different pieces of memories from the store.Viewing your photos today just allowed me to take a trip down memory lane. And yes he also had people who would ” run a tab” at the store.
