Found during demo

Over the years, we have made some interesting discoveries during project demo. Frequently, we unearth old newspapers like this one yesterday from 1940. "4 grapefruit for $.17... lamb chops $.25/ lb" tells a story of the good old days! Have you ever made any great discoveries during a project?

    Like the time capsule ideas! @Dawn P - I've left old newspapers above cabinets, behind the trim, for others to find as well.

    we found a full page newspaper ad for A & P grocery store from 1932..it was behind an old picture when we opened the frame....i have it re-framed in my kitchen....eggs 33 cents a dozen, pork roast 6 cents a pound and bacon 19 cents a pound and many more deals...everyone who looks at it just goes "wow"
