You’re Probably Around My Age If…

...you not only know what these items are, but actually know/knew someone who used them.


Anyone?

They take me way back to my early childhood and remind me of my dad.

Wishing you all a beautiful weekend!

  5. Shaving cream and brush to apply shaving cream to one's face :) I think barbers used them a lot. I never personally saw anyone use them.

    Have a great weekend! Last one of February! Where did the month go?

  9. Yeah, my Dad used lather, a brush and a razor when I was young. Then electric razors were invented and he ditched them right away!

    1. My dad did the same, except for the electric razor. He never got into that. He just went onto the disposable razors.

  10. I know what they are, but my dad never used them. Maybe my grandpa?

  11. I don't remember my Pop using them, but he was of the age so he should have done.

    1. He probably used other products. My dad used this for a bit and then moved onto other things.

  12. Oh yes. I remember these. I may have even tried them before Dad got his electric razor.

    1. This goes way, way back, so it's a little hard to remember them.

  13. Same here ! My Dad always used these for shaving then he would use old spice after shave .

  14. That should be real horse hair for the brush and the foaming shaving cream in the cup .

    ReplyDelete
  15. I honestly didn't figure out at once. I thought the brush is for kinda of a powder :)

    ReplyDelete
  16. Yep! Shaving paraphernalia! Reminds me of my grandfather. :)

  17. My brother in law used to use them back in India ( in 1971). I do not have any special memories of them but my husband says that he was responsible to clean off the soap after his brother shaved and he did not like that. I am not so sure if my brother in law still uses them, but we are in America and my husband does not have to clean the brush and the cup. Yay !

  18. My late brother in law gave his brother my husband one for a Hanukkah gift in 1979..He never used it as I always buy Norelco plug in razors for him...I remember them well, he even gave him a brush like the one in the picture too..No one uses them anymore, we still have the yellow rotary phone we got in Colorado when we first married, we had the chance to buy it for $5.00 from Mountain Bell and we bought our own phone when we came to Washington state, the rotary phone lasted until the phone company made us get our own line we had party lines of 10 other people and after that we have had to purchase phones, they don't last too long..I think older is not necessarily not better I am still married to my childhood sweetheart soon 41 years, he won't trade me in nor I him...our only child is nearly 38 end of this year, she is not married cause she cannot find anyone like her daddy to marry..loving, quiet, kind, hard working and not uppity and loves the family he came from no matter what..she will stay single for a long long time, she has no time for a starter marriage and the resulting drama and hijinks that follows!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    1. Sounds like your husband is a great man. But I bet you're just as wonderful.

      Some older products were built like tanks and lasted forever. That was one of the good things about them.
