Money Compact

Are any of you gals old enough to remember these?

                                                                     

I was looking through a little cabinet I have setting on my kitchen bar and had forget this was in it.


It has its section for half dollars, quarters , dimes, nickels. I can remember as a child if I had change to put in this I was so happy and felt so girly girly to carry it in my little purse.

This is in my little treasure cabinet aslo, Rhinestone stuff which I have loved all my life

  5. I still have my money compact from the 50's or was it 60's. I think it looks just like yours. It was fun to be able to fill it with something. Love your clear rhinestone jewelry too.

  6. Have never heard of these before. I have heard women say they used to use sixpences to hold their stockings up and that way they always had two shillings for emergencies.
