An extensive set of dinnerware I received from my grandmother was assembled over time by visits to a particular grocery store. And, I remember my mom collecting drinking glasses from the Pester Derby gas stations. A lot of Depression Glass items were sold as premiums, too. I really think part of the charm of these items is the fact that they were examples of such a humble distribution method, and I'm proud to have them!

Glad to see you are familiar with Mark's "Lost Cines" project - he's producing an independent film about the history of theaters in Des Moines using items from his extensive collection. He's a great guy (okay yeah I'm biased, he's a good personal friend) with an amazing amount of creative talent.

Nice post, Larry - you always manage to bring back the memories! ~ Janet
