Retro Swap Meet
These “swaps” from more than half-a-century ago are quite amusing:
Package store owner selling out, going into flower shop. Will swap five cases of 4 Roses for a year’s supply of the real thing. (Red, yellow or pink).
I have male and female hamsters. Will trade the whole lot of them for anything, anything!.
Have a chandelier that George Washington slept one mile away from. Will swap for two fluorescent lights and a bedside reader.
Elderly lady who has knowledge of fortune telling will trade her secrets to anyone who knows anything about nuclear physics.
Tired capitalist has soft drink cup vending machine business. Eager to travel. Will hand over machines, soda (five flavors worth!), service man whom I employ, a screwdriver and a bag of nickels for any make 1952 car, filled with gas, and equipped with set of golf clubs. Also, could you throw in a road map and a package of bicarbonate of soda?
Would like to swap my own collection of programs from summer theaters in Ohio for year pass to any summer theater on the Cape.
Will swap four carless tires for a pair of roller skates and a guide book to Cape Cod.
Collect old ladders that have been bad luck to anyone. Have you any that you would like to swap for anything I can get?
