Last post of the month and the last of three vintage stickers recently purchased at a thrift market in Eureka Springs. Dogpatch was one of the first memories I have of Arkansas. Not only an Al Capp cartoon, it was a theme park located at the then-isolated area of Newton County, Arkansas.
Back in the 1970s, my old man had a filling station and one of the coolest things about it was all the tourist brick-a-bract. For the longest, there was a sticker carousal that was filled with awesome stickers. I has this sticker as a kid. Memories. Found (and quickly purchased) in a thrift store in Eureka Springs, Arkansas.
As a child, I had a blow up Smokey Bear almost identical to this in the photo. Apparently, he is celebrated his 75th anniversary. Interesting story about the origins of Smokey Bear here. Found in a thrift shop in Eureka Springs, Arkansas.
This family was living, at one time, in eastern Oklahoma. Early 1970s by the look of the matte and rounded corners. Have a lot of these from a group found in a thrift store in Eureka Springs, Arkansas.
