I have spent this morning putting some American Girl Magazines from the 1950's up on E-Bay. I have enjoyed having these, but need to let them go to new homes.
While I was taking photos for e-bay a few ads brought back memories for me. In the summer of 1969 when I was 10 years old, my friend Karen W. took this offer up and sold greeting cards.
Karen W. remembers that with the money she earned she bought a wooden tennis racket. I have no recollection of what I received or how much money I earned.
I was never that good at selling things. Too shy (although I guess not too shy to cause mental injury to a girl much older than I was).
Did you ever go door to door as a youngster selling things?
