My Vintage Peanut Butter Jar Collection

It is a meager collection.  A humble collection.  One that I may never add to.  One that is virtually worthless.  My Sessions peanut butter jar collection.

When I was growing up I was a very picky eater.  But I never snubbed a PB&J sandwich.  My thrifty mother bought huge jars of Sessions School Days peanut butter.  I practically lived off the stuff.  I don't know if it was just sold in the Midwest, but when I left for college I had to adopt other brands.  By the time I was married and settled, School Days PB was gone. 

Then I came across a huge old box of PB jars.  I made a small fortune selling most of the jars.  But I couldn't part with the School Days jars.  Only one had a label.  A few years later my dad had a small garage sale, and one of the items he was getting rid of was a large old School Days jar!  I added them to my pantry storage jars (see blog here),  and it makes me smile to see them.
