    I love that list. How about archival storage boxes, cotton conservation gloves and strings of lead weights, (See, for example, Conservation by Design at http://www.conservation-by-design.co.uk).

  2. Juliana Says:

    Ida: thanks for the link! I was scouring the internet for some supplier of the strings of lead weights, but couldn’t find any. I may be buying myself a Christmas present. Those things are so handy and they never have one long enough at the library!

  4. Marie Coleman Says:

    All About Home Economics brings back memories; what about ‘Exploring English 1′ also reissued, like ‘Soundings’ last year.

  5. Juliana Says:

    Funny how no one reissues history textbooks [or maybe they do?]. It seems like an obvious demonstration of how much tone shapes wether history seems fresh or stale, biased or ‘neutral.’ And how much the present changes what we think of the past. A Cold War era history textbook is not exactly timeless. Of course the choices of texts for Exploring English 1 were very much of their time, but one artifact makes us nostalgic and the other is funny, embarrassing or boring. Makes you think they should be using more original texts for teaching school history!

    While daycare franchises may not be the route for you they definitely have a lot of
    appeal to those with a little extra cash and not much
