I just returned from a trip abroad and one of our many stops was Cologne, Germany.
It was a beautiful city, but one recurring & rather disturbing theme there was Gas Masks!
|This display was in an antique shop in Cologne. SCARY!|
On our last day in the city, there was an anti-nuclear protest about 5 miles long, and seriously 1/2 the protesters were wearing Gas Masks. I saw gas masks in store displays, antique stores, and museums.
Is that normal?

This all leads me to my question. I was at a Yard Sale and purchased a trunk with a bunch of vintage linens. When I got home and started going through the trunk, I had to throw many of the linens away due to mold, but at the bottom lay this gas mask. I've never known what to do with it. Morally I thought it was a little too morbid to list in my shop, but I hesitate to just throw it away. Do people collect these things? Does Goodwill sell them?
|The bag is actually sort of neat, it would make a cool camera bag.|
If you had a gas mask (or if you do)...what do you do with it??? Any insights would be greatly appreciated!
I'm linking up to Apron Thrift Girls Thrift Share Monday post again, so drop by and check out all of the other amazing (not so morbid) finds there :-)
Have a great week ~ Lara
