your Daily Double or You can buy your nears and dears cheap junk from China OR

you can get them wonderful awesome and RARE stuff from my Zazzle store

True fact.  

Here's what we have for you today:
It was the best of times, it was the worst of times...
 Meaning, of course, the 1930s.  For some people it was horrible and horrendous*, and yet we also remember that the 1930s were the absolute peak of Cafe Society and classy people and classy cars and classy movies and such and such    The lady above is obviously from that second category of people.  Her image is from 1937.  She's available on decals -- notebooks -- t-shirts --greeeting cards -- tote bags -- mouse pads, MORE.  Go to: www.zazzle.com/the_olden_eye/products and in the 'search this store' box enter 'glamorous woman'  


And what else would you expect a high style high society dame to ride in...
other than a Packard?  Specifically, a 1939 Packard Super 8.  (Yes, she would have to wait two years for it to come out.)  This bo awesome vehicle is available on notebooks -- decals -- trinket boxes --buttons -- tote bags -- note pads -- t-shirts -- mouse pads -- pillows, and oodles more!  Go to www.zazzle.com/the_olden_eye/products and enter '1939 Packard'

*There's a book I have entitled Down and Out in the Great Depression: Letters from the “Forgotten Man” which is a collection of letters sent to Franklin Roosevelt and/or Eleanor Roosevelt during the Depression.  If you want a good cry, this is the book for you.  Among the letters is one begging Eleanor if could send one of her winter coats, because the letter-writer doesn't have one, can't afford one, and desperately needs one.  Letters begging for all kinds of help with food, or the rent is due and the letter-writer still hasn't found work, even after trying for months and months...  It just goes on and on.  I've kept it because whenever I've been in a play where my character had to cry, all I have to do is think about these letters, and I turn into a blubbering mess.
