    LOL – Why doesn’t Red have the collar around his neck?

    A little “walk in my shoes” type of thing…

    Five and Dime store?

    That’s what they used to call them, but now with inflation they’re the five and ten dollar store.

    We didn’t have a five ’n dime in our town, just the local drug store. I sure wish still had all those comic books though.

    That’s OK, as long as Red doesn’t start raising his leg and peeing on random stuff.

    We had one of these when I was Red’s age – what a great penny candy selection they had!

    Ah, so you could buy anything in the store for either a nickel, a dime… or a one hundred dollar bill?

    I guess the closest thing today might be a “dollar store”. My brother and I use to get our Hy-Flyer kites at a five and dime store. Remember this was a time when there was a 1 cent postcard stamp, 5 cent first class, 10 cent air mail stamp, and S&H Green Stamps.

    Used to go the local five and dime with my grandparents all the time. Don’t remember many things that actually cost a nickel, though. It was more like the dime and quarter by then. Wow, I’m always shocked to remember how much you could buy with a single dollar just 35 years ago. And then I remember what minimum wage was 20 and 25 years ago…

    Yes, when they first opened, I think Woolworth’s was the first, their pull was that everything could be bought for a nickel or a dime. Of course, that was back when weekly salaries averaged about $50. Heaven for a kid; I miss them still. BTW, today’s Kmart started as Kresge’s, Woolworth’s main competition in 5&10 arena.

    I started reading Comic Books when they were 12¢ each. My dollar allowance got me 4 comics, a soda and a single dip ice cream cone.

    My LORD I AM SO OLD!!!

    I never got an allowance, I occasionally could wheedle a nickel or dime out of my parents when we went to five and dime store. Yep, I’m old too!

    I sold newspapers on the street until Mom heard me comment the smoke in the bars didn’t bother me. $igh, bad move on my part. :-)
