This Will Grab You

Although this item I found in Mom’s Garage isn’t as spectacular as say

Napco Victorian Lady or even The Steak Oven

it really took me by surprise !

I was looking at these tongs thinking these would be great to use when I grill



then I looked at the handle

The Tongs are a promotional item from

Marathon Gasoline


I am just guessing that they are from the 1960’s

sure in the 60’s you couldn’t get a bladder buster diet coke and nachos

but you did get some tongs plus

an attendant would check your oil and wipe your windshield

I bet most of us even got green stamps… I better look in the garage for them !

That’s why I like stuff from Mom’s Garage

it takes you back to a time when things were different

  1. The 60’s were the best! Back in the day when they were deservedly called ‘service stations’.
