This month has been wonderful to me. On the 8th of October I went with my grandma, mom and brother to Minnesota to visit my great-grandma. We had a great time, though it was pretty short. Regardless, I always enjoy being there, and cherish the time I still have with my great-grandma. We typically go about once a year, last year we went in June. It was comforting to see that she was still as sharp as when we visited last year. She is one of 3 great-grandparents I still have with me on this earth, she being the only one left on my mother's side of the family. I am so lucky to still have them with me, I know that many people never got the chance to meet their great-grandparents, or even grandparents in some cases.
Before I start to make a pond with tears, another thing that made me so happy this month was all of the new followers and readers I got! I now have 14. I know the number isn't big, but I'm just so happy people like my blog enough to follow, so thank you so much, it means a lot to me and I'm so happy to have your support. I also want to thank Brittany from Va-Voom Vintage for mentioning my blog along with four other blogs she has enjoyed reading lately. I know there has been a jump in activity since she mentioned my blog, and can't thank her enough for this awesome boost! Thank you Brittany!
So, I'm sure you're wondering, what is this vintage hair curlers collection all about?! Well, I have a collection of vintage hair curlers and wavers ranging probably from the 30's to the 60's. Some are unique, some common and some downright strange. There are pincurl clips, retractable wavers, 'automatic' curlers, and some good old bobby pins. I searched for each one in the Sears, Roebuck Catalog, and did get a few answers and dates back. If you want to search for something made between 1896 and 1993, Ancestry.com has a great collection of the Sears, Roebuck catalogs, which is very helpful when trying to date an item or find what it's purpose might've been. Without further ado, here they are:
Thank you so much for reading!
Happy collecting :)
