Nickel gumball machine
I recently read an article on Time that discussed the top 10 things the children of today will never experience. This got me thinking about what I relied on when I grew up and how much has changed since my parents were kids. I went home this weekend and immediately started rummaging through old photographs and keepsakes that my family has stored over the years, and I came across some very cool yet outdated items. My favorite find is the rotary phone. Granted, it takes longer to dial someone, but it allows me to slow down and take a breath. I love thinking about the endless conversations my grandparents had on this phone. I am happy to report that it has found a new home on my nightstand. What are your favorite family collectibles?
