Customer comments

In the 1940's and early 50's, my grandfather and I used to walk to the corner store when the bread came in. People didn't use packing tape much in those days - everything was tied closed with twine or string. The bread came packed in cardboard boxes tied closed with this pretty string.
Grandpa and I were allowed to pick up all we wanted as the grocer just cut it off the boxes.

What colors would there be! We started a ball of it: white and red, white and green, white and blue, and occasionally red and black, or all black - what a special find. The last time I remember seeing that ball, it was over 15 inches in diameter--even with Grandma using a bit of it now and then!

Until she died in 1992 at 103, if Grandma had a box to put away, she tied it with a bit of string or a strip of fabric. Those boxes, when one surfaces from storage today, are still securely tied - no brittle rubber bands or useless yellowed tape! Occasionally one is still tied with baker's twine from Grandpa's ball of string! THANK YOU for the wonderful memories.
