Callie Magee Antiques
I am a collector of old things. Some of them I sell to others who like me
want to preserve these old memories for the next generations.
"The older the ruin, the greener the moss.
the older the friendship, the keener the loss."

From the 50's
Do you know what these were used for?
Then you are older than most people who come into the store and are wondering.
1950's drive in movie speakers.
Lots of these were lost when people forgot to unplug them before driving away. Picture from New York Times.
Sodas and other menu items from 50's
crinolines or can-can slips
1950's prom dresses
1950's poodle skirt and cashmere sweater with tissue scarf and belt.
Just a few things from the 1950's.
And the header is the old Evening in Paris perfume from that era.
Cheap and not so pleasant and sold in 5 and 10 cent stores, another relic from the time.
