I want it ... I Want It.. I WANT IT NOW!!!!!

I was not raised to be spoiled... No sir. My mamma did NOT tolerate tantrums...AT ALL!!!  But somewhere down the road as I became an adult the desire to have one ( just one) has been building in me like a kettle about to boil. So here it is.... I WANT IT!!!!!!!! "  What is it?" you wonder ( as you try to soothe my kicking and tears like a child at Wal-Mart in the toy department. Ohhhhhh you have seen them). Okay, it is ....

  This!!! (I know you are scratching your head.) I have been a pharmacy Technician for 15 years now. And I looooooveeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee all vintage pharmacy stuff. Vintage prescriptions, motar and pestles, you name it. I adore it. 

(This is by far one of the coolest things I have ever seen in my career!! COCAINE toothace drops?? That will knock it out for sure.  So what if you will need rehab later. At least your tooth won't hurt).

So I need some bloggy assistance. If anyone knows where I can find any vintage pharmacy items, please let me know. I guess I will get off the floor now.......

I was visiting my mom and dad on Saturday in my hometown in KS and the independent pharmacy there had the coolest display of vintage pharmacy items (not for sale unfortunately). I could have spent hours looking...very interesting stuff back in the day.
