A plastic bag full of stuff caught my eye recently at one of my local thrifts. Inside was a vintage "Cadette"Girl Scout Handbook, so I picked it up to check it out. The plastic bag was stapled shut, so you couldn't view all of the contents.
I like the cute illustrations inside the book, dated 1973:
I was a Brownie and a Girl Scout, and I still wish there was a picture of me in one of my uniforms!
By 1973, though, I was no longer a Girl Scout - we were still 4-H members at that time, though.
I saved so many things, I can't imagine why I don't have my sash or anything. I still wonder what in the heck happened to some of that stuff! I might have a couple of pins somewhere, but I think that's it.
I was very pleased once I saw what all was included in the bag, after getting it home.
Quite a few of them (more than you see pictured here!):
All together, there are at least 65 of them.
I don't know a lot about them, but I was happy I decided to buy the bag!
