When I was a teen, I began putting matchbooks and other small things I collected into an empty pickle jar. The jar was stored in a closet in my home until just a few months ago when I moved it to my desk so I could look at it all the time.
The jar itself is pretty old. I'm not sure if it is the original pickle jar, but I know that this jar has been in the closet of my home since I moved here almost 28 years ago. I tried to look up the history of Vlasic pickle jars to see what years they had a green lid, but I couldn't find anything helpful.
In my next post, we will take a closer look at what is inside the pickle jar.
