Peanut Butter Lovers’ Day

Always knew that my birthday would fall on a famous day… and here it is March 1st. Really interesting when we think that peanut butter is something that we invented, but it dates back to the Aztecs and Incas. Really? The real important date is when the peanut butter machine was invented in 1903, with Peter Pan licensed in 1928 and Skippy in 1932. Jif followed behind in 1955 and Planters Peanut butter in the 1950s. Perfect day to start collecting and displaying old Peanut jars. Check out these jars and early pails for sale on icollect247.com.

No matter if you have just a few pieces in your home or your whole house showcases your collection, it is unique and no other home will look like yours.  Just as your house has a personality, so does your collection. Collectors enjoy sharing their pictures of how they have decorate and used their purchases in their home.

As both sellers and collectors we enjoy seeing those pictures. Here are two Coca-Cola some recent vintage pieces we have sold on icollect247.

These photos show how a recent buyer has displayed vintage Coca-Cola cardboards and vintageCoca-Cola trolley signs recently purchase from icollect247 along side their newer pieces.

We featured a Drugstore collection of wonderful pieces that were breathtaking in our Antique Back Roads magazine.  Terry McMurray has a collection of early Drugstore pieces which are to die for.
