Memories of the Soviet Union: it collected children
Yes, it will be discussed about what we saved. Not a collector, but it is hoarded. Because, as always, and said - "and give me this brand - I'm saving them."
I think this part is no less touching, because what we saved was for us the second largest holiness. After the mother, of course. So, let's begin.
In my opinion, I did not collect stamps only lazy. Already even the brand of envelopes unglued for a couple, but they were at all. I also had a cherished little album. Part of the brands inherited from his older brother, part I traded or bought for pocket money himself. I just love their brand: aircraft, ships, cars, painting of medieval masters, which I learned the structure of the female body, berries, birds, people, person, town - it was a whole world in a single album.
Soviet, Polish, Cuban ...
Moreover, CUBA always and necessarily be read as "SIVA" and I had no idea what it is.
Here's a little album and I was
But the most valuable - is triangular and calcium oxide, ie, without a stamp...
One of my favorite episodes was here this
But the most-most - that this
Do not say that I am passionate hoarding icons, but still we were full of them - in a box with buttons on the carpet, on the pennants on the chest, under the sofa, toys ...
Some of my friends icons are not particularly valued, so the desired icon easily could elicit a gift.
In the USSR loved icons. Loved them to do, give love on any occasion, liked to buy. Parents are at work constantly received some badges. That honorable combatants, some of the social. competition is for participating in the exhibition ... motivation system was very primitive and cheap. Distinguished - get a badge and be proud. And proud of it. They worked not for money, but for the idea. And the icon. icons so it was not a lot to say - there were so many. Different. And even funny
And even so ....
With the advent of the nineties Soviet aluminum badges stamped lost their relevance. To us came new cartoons, which replaced the Wolf, Hedgehog, Rabbit and other characters. Our portfolios chest and clung to Disney characters
We grew up, and together with us "grown and matured" badges. "I bought a badge ...". What a profound thought ...
As well as the brand, foreign or antique coins were each. I do not believe, if you say that you did not have GDRovskih pfennig, Bulgarian or Polish stotinkas pennies. Coin socialist countries the people there were a lot of - some serving, some resting, someone just had. And carried the coins, which quickly dispersed by hand.
And who, having found among the data mom bread coins pre-reform "threefold" or "penny" Do not delay it in his cherished piggy bank? These coins 30-50s's somehow different from the post-reform. Curls, a different number of bands on the arms, the other letters, font ... Remember the legendary film "money-changers" - it's just about these coins :)
Coin changed on stamps, badges and back. And coins played "snip", but it moves, earning his ice cream, cigarettes, chewing gum and sosachki. His collection of coins I have for some reason, buried in the ground, having read the pirated novels ... And now regret - there were so cool ...
How do you feel on the type of these machines? :) Same as me?
And this is how?
Drool flowed? Yeah, it's notable collection. I was not even half of it. But they were the most precious thing I had. In the literal and figurative sense of the word. They cost a lot. For example, the "Volga GAZ 2402 Aeroflot" I was bought for 10 rubles
And the "Field" was also not cheap
And now the girls can go back again to us - remember their great treasures :)
I do not know whether you are sending is now his family and friends postcards by regular mail? In my opinion, today's young people already can not understand how it is, and why, if there are services Yandex, Mail, and others :) But we appreciated each card, which find themselves in a mailbox before March 8, February 23, May 1, , Happy Birthday and Happy New year. Each card has its own way unique. Warm words, "Hello, my dear," the beginning, "whole" at the end ... A piece of heat, heart and soul ... They were beautiful.
In general, there were many. So much that we hoarded them.
We did not have calendars on your iPhone, computer and phone. Therefore, the days of Mom's birthday, dad, sister, brother, boyfriend, girlfriend, dolls and its finally we celebrated the handle in the paper calendar cards. They also had a lot to start picking them up.
Calendars, as well as badges issued for any occasion. They were cartoon characters
And nyashnye seals, dogs, and public service ads like "Matches to children - not a toy." Or "In case of fire - call 01".
There were views of cities
And the other Misc ...
But the coolest - it's stereo ... We called them "iridescent". Povernesh one angle - one scene from another - the second. Mini-comics.
Another popular hobby was collecting and pasting, which can only be images, called "perevodilki". The technology of their gluing was not easy and required skill I often "zaparyval" part of the picture, t. To. The film was extremely thin and delicate. But this did not cloud the joy of beholding the new image ...
... on the kitchen wall ...
... on the bedside table in prihozhke ....
... on the tiles in the bathroom ...
in the breadbox ... ..
have been very popular with faces of different perevodilki tetenek. Girls pasted them on the cover of his diary
And I like the heroes of cartoons. first Soviet
Matchbox labels and color matches
And I was saving Matchbox labels. And they even do not have to tear off - collecting these small pictures in the USSR was quite "legal" - in "Sayuzdruk" easily could buy naborchik labels.
Of course, sets quickly bored, and it was "not a sport", so peeling labels from boxes was more interesting way of accumulation.
And I like to collect color matches. They were a rarity, because in addition to brown, we almost did not see the other.
They were always the standard - dirty gold. Whether it's beer or lemonade - tin, and under her white rezinochka, which makes them a photo, tightly clutching a picture in the newspaper. Therefore rarely hits the streets were colored cork weight in gold.
You feel closer to the master? :) Let's talk about the packs.
sank in my chest? The names of the 90 "PellMell", "Magna", "Sovereign", "Fine 120," "Lucky Strike", "Sea" :)
Who in many began to smoke, I confess :) - to 13. In the same year, and dropped. Forever. My first bought cigarettes were "Rodopi" ( "Smoking girls, Rodopi, so tits do not grow at the railway. Ne", "Smoking, boys, Palmali, that something was not dropped"). And before that, ashamed to admit, we collected cigarette butts, crumbled remnants in the newspaper and resins under the balcony. For happiness to find menthol ... Damn, let kolites - you did so? Or we were the only ones rogue? 8-0Ctydno even remember ...
But there is a fairly steep pachechku - those few who were
By the way, somewhere in the collection zanykal half a pack of Camel. I specifically its canned: put silica gel in and soldered polyethylene. For some reason it was confident that by the time a cigarette is only stronger and more valuable ... Check what? ...
This "wall" could truly be jealous!
But no one so much it was not among my friends. There was about as
Jars always given the highest place of honor in the room. Edakii red angle. To all the friends come immediately saw the collection.
Many cans picked up on the street. It took even badly wrinkled and flattened - all easily rectified only give the time and a pencil. On rare crumpled jar it was not sorry to spend and evening - she straightened valued no less. Jars were divided on the form: "house", "straight", "long" (0, 5). "House" - it is the most common and usual form. "Direct" were a rarity - they had no narrowing at the top and the bottom (flat cylinder).
Candy wrappers and wrappers
The girls often collected wrappers from chocolates. first such
From colorful zolotinok done "sekretiki" in the land, that we boys proudly destroyed like mine. And even girlish tears have not touched ...
Friends and who remembers the famous chocolate bars "Holiday Boniface" ??? I've been looking for any information about these bars. Do they now produce. Can anyone have their photo? They were heavenly delight! They took them only from Moscow, gave the house strictly portions :) I remember: in white, soft nougat, wafer thin fruit and thick-thick layer of chocolate. And a beautiful wrapper with different scenes from the movie
In the 90s, when the invasion of Mars, Snickers, Stimorol, I myself began to collect bright, plastic packaging of chocolates and cookies. We remember than regaled
Well, the magic chest "Milky Way," with "the LEGO" elements. Remember?
