Okay... so its probably not what you expected when you read the title:

But this weekend I made a short trip to go purchase an entire collection of Cities Service salesman sample promotional station giveaways. The woman I bought these from, her grandfather was an executive for Cities Service that managed the promotions dept. These were all the sample promotional items that she found in his basement/house. Most say 'Dealer Name Here' as they were used as examples to what each station could order.

Figured I would share since a lot of them were neat little trinkets that I havent seen prior to this... I have lots of pictures as my wife & I enjoyed our Saturday night digging thru the boxes and sorting all of it.

Thanks
