Ruby Tuesday - Antique Shoppe

The gentleman who has this little shop repairs and restores furniture and trades in the sort of old stuff that I have seen referred to as "Junktiques".  He is a nice fellow and repaired some dining room chairs for Susan.  He has some interesting things.  I must admit that I remember when Pepsi-Cola was 5¢ and its selling feature was that it came in a 12 ounce bottle rather than a 6 ounce bottle like Coca-Cola.  Do you remember the jingle? 

"Pepsi-Cola hits the spot /
Twelve full ounces, that's a lot /
Twice as much for a nickel, too /
Pepsi-Cola is the drink for you."

Sadly, yes, I do remember the jingle. Love this shot. Lots of interest. Great framing.

Really nice composition and capture. I do remember soft drinks costing only a nickle, but I'm a little fuzzy on the jingle.
