Dogpatch

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.

Home of the Shmoo

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.

Phillips 66

Reminds me of long-gone days as a child where I would pump gas, check oil and clean windshields at my old man’s gas station. Found in a thrift market in Springdale, Arkansas.
