You know you're getting old....

...when you're browsing thru an Antique Mall and you're seeing things you remember from your childhood! Like this and this and this, and these. I also had one of these and some of these. I carried this lunchbox to school (Bubba's Mom still has the thermos)!! Also a lot of old dishes and pitchers that I remember being in either our house or my grandmother's house, record albums (um..are those really antique now?), and old typewriters (my Granddaddy had an old typewriter that he threw out with the trash!!!!!!!!!!!!!!). When I was a child I thought going to antique stores was B-O-R-I-N-G because it was just a bunch of old stuff........now it's more like a trip down Memory Lane! Look! There's Nanny's dishes! Hey! Maw Maw had this in her kitchen! Hey - Granddaddy used to have THIS PICTURE hanging on his wall! ::sigh:: I guess I really AM getting older.

I can relate to that. Two of the items you listed were in our house, too. And you can tell when society expects you to have children (or the majority of people your age are having children) when all the toys are the toys you grew up with. My Little Pony, anyone?

Ummm Mom, Ive been telling you that for years that your getting old, your now just listening?!?!?! But dont feel bad, all my friends Moms are in their upper 40s and 50s, and I know I sure helped add a few gray hairs to your head, but you cant even see em!

Most of that stuff you mentioned shouldn't be in an Antique store, it should be in a garage sale! ;)

That's what I was thinking, Katie Lady, but when I got the photos off eBay EVERY ITEM was listed as "vintage". Go figure!
