  1. I am really smiling big at one of your grandies and their big “business.” Great lessons and fun times had by all, Beth. ♡
    My brothers and I would fill up our red wagon with glass bottles, some gathered from construction sites, to take to a small delicatessen called, Szarka’s. We earned pennies for penny candy. 🙂

    • It’s both brothers, one just had an easier time if it due to his size) reminds me of stuff my sisters and I would do. Hope they are supporting the whole family soon )

  2. Fun! As kids we used to collect soda bottles and get five cents for small ones and ten cents for the large ones (if I recall correctly) and a bit later the newly invented aluminum soda and beer cans for money. With long licorice strings and bubble gum selling for only a penny, Big Hunk bars for a nickel, and most candy bars a dime (and they were all larger in those days!) we used to be able to gorge ourselves sick. We were in that sweet spot (pun intended) where recycling was become a big deal and the deposit value of the bottles and cans had gone up much faster than the cost of the candy. Sweet times! We’d clean up nearby orchards on weekends and a week later the orchards would be ready for another bountiful harvest, and I’m not talking fruit!
