We were looking for furnishings for the eldest to take back to school for her new house. I missed out on a great buy at a yard sale, but it did make me think about coffee tables. At one time in our early married life we used a foot locker made by Mr. H's dad many, many years ago.
Yes, we still have it, and yes, our eldest wants to use it.
So we found it out in the storage shed and brought it in.
And it was full of treasure!
The other 2 objects are evidence of how the world has changed in the past 30 years. When we registered for classes, we looked through the catalog, picked our classes and signed up accordingly. I'm not sure that there is such a publication any longer.
And the real prize is the Radio Shack pong game! You could play tennis, hockey, or squash. The angle, ball speed and bat size each had 2 options. The 2 sliders moved the paddles up and down. That was it: no sideways, no diagonal. But ground-breaking for its time.
Definitely a treasure box.
