Organizing vintage style would surely tame any tangle. Dennison is a favorite find at estate sales and some of them that I happily hoard are the ones that still perfectly packaged in their original boxes.

Ideal for any home or office necessity.  But what you don't see are the cute graphics on the back.

A house that literally bursts at the seams...another little helper.

While your husband slaves away at the office and staples you can play at home with yours?

How cute is her label shirt.

With her typewriter and labels she is ready to take on the you think she can use her husbands stapler?

Love these "little helpers". Sometimes the packaging can be more interesting than the contents. These are wonderful.

You would think not many people saved stuff like this but I guess I'm wrong. I know for a fact no one hauled any such thing up the Alcan moving to Alaska.

Cute post! Those stereotypes are so startling when we seem then now but it really wasn't that long ago. We have come a long way, baby! I have my own stapler and it is better than his. Ha!

Yet another wonderful bunch of finds, I wonder if I have walked by them at the antique stores and not noticed them. I will now! The little house bursting at the seams reminds me of mine these days!

Gorgeous graphics. I love how advertising and commercial graphic design give insight into past values and lifestyle . You have a great sense of the collectible xx
