Vintage Market

I spent this morning exploring a vintage and antiques market- it was an amazing place. I ended up with a new houndstooth jacket and also a small silver and garnet pendant- both beautiful despite being inexpensive. Here’s some of the pictures I managed to take in amongst the stalls <3

Enjoy these registered patent labels for products created for and marketed to women! From the shoe-damaging perils of driving a car to keeping your hands clean while cooking patty-shaped foods, inventors know what ladies need.

All of the labels are from Record Group 241, Records of the Patent and Trademark Office. These patent labels have been digitized and will soon be available in the National Archives Catalog (archives.catalog.gov)
