Extra Tubes With That, Sir?

Wouldn't it be nice to just go back in time for one day, to Thursday, February 17, 1938, the day this advertisement was printed in the 'Westfield' section of the Springfield Daily News, and stock up on stuff? I mean, oil cloth at 29 cents a yard...Who could resist? And those Universal Electric Mixer and Juicers, reduced from $19.95 to $12.50, well sure, they're still a little pricey, but people: It's cutting edge technology...Err, 70 years ago. I would stay away from the "Radiant Gasoline Room Heater," though, gas is so darn-tooting expensive! And the "Soiled" wood clothes dryers are something I might also find easy to pass up, although with a 49 cent price tag...Who knows? Hey, stuff can be cleaned.
