Am I Kinda Weird? I Mean...Bowling Bags? Status: Out In The Garage Collecting Cobwebs.
It's not only a strange collection, it's hard to display! But c'mon, don't these just Scream 1950s, 1960s!?!?
I have managed to curb my enthusiasm for collecting these. I realized I just had no
way to properly display them. I need like, a china cabinet for them! The good news
it that we actually USE two of them! We do occasionally GO Bowling! Tropicana
lanes in Clayton may have the best neon sign, but for my money...I prefer to bowl
at the Oldest Lanes west of the Mississippi River; Saratoga Lanes in Maplewood
Missouri (where I grew up!).
Maybe some day I'll find a cool set of Bowling Lockers to put in the laundry room
and display all these bags in there! Who knows, maybe I should sell them as
ladies retro handbags. All but the baby blue one with white & blue starbursts and
my dark blue side zip one. We use those. And how 'bout those vintage wingtip
bowling shoes? His and Hers! Wheeeeeee!
