A revelation to me that supermarket gumball machines once contained miniature consumer packaged goods.
These photos from Eureka Gumball Charm Nirvana are only a small sampling of what’s out there for collectors of tiny supermarket charms.
(Some display cards, after the fold…)
Note the old-fashioned “grocer” in the card on the right: a charming illustration, but in a world of self-service supermarkets — he is historically one of the people replaced by packaging. (See: Fallout Shelter Packaging)
