So many times I wonder if we really remember details from our past, or do we see the photos, hear the stories and then that's what we remember....not the actual place, people or things. When I saw this small round plastic container on a bottom shelf in a thrift store I had a flood of memories come back just like running into an old friend. I know there are no photos of this item, and certainly no stories about it. As soon as my sister saw it she said, "Wow that's just like the one Mom had!" We both remember it was so cool to press the buttons on the side and have the sections spin open magically on their own. Mom had powder in the top section and an electric razor in the bottom.
I wonder if Remington Rand ever imagined that their simple product could be so magical to a child.....and to me more then forty years later.........Jolene
