Here are 3 excellent samples of advertising giveaway items from eastern Colorado, in the Brush, Sterling and FT Morgan areas.
They consist of a small tape measure, a toothpick or match holder, and a small razor knife, all small enough to fit in a farmer’s pocket. All have been used, and do show some wear and light staining, but all are working, and terrific items.
The tape measure is printed STERLING LIVESTOCK COMM., CO. with phone and address. The toothpick or match holder is stamped BRUSH LIVESTOCK OF COLO., with telephone numbers also. Also on the case is the motto WHERE THE CHAMPION AUCTIONEERS GET THE TOP DOLLAR FOR YOUR LIVESTOCK, and the name, HENRY BLAKE, OWNER, imprinted on it. Hmmmmm, do you think its the same Henry Blake who was a colonel on the TV series MASH? Probably not. Oh, well. The last item is a small razor knife with the printed logo of ACCO SEED COURTESY OF YOUR DEALER.
All items were found in a local auction, and would certainly dress up any advertising collection, especially with FREE SHIPPING!
FREE SHIPPING will be via USPS Mail Services, for your convenience, and rest assured, I always pack things solidly! One note, if you would like to pickup these items locally, email me to let me know you want to pick it up, and we can arrange for a meeting.
