Tools of the Trade

They have held herbs, mixtures and healing powders
 The colors are bold and the pattern beautiful

 These jars are newer but when we went to Salem-Winston, NC we went to old Salem and visited an Apothecary shop
 Now, these bottles are the real thing.  Can you image the healing power that were found through natural herbs?
 Now I am sure that it was hit and miss but in their time they were life savers

 Love these herbs
 The tools of the trade are so awesome
As a nurse it was so cool to see all the tools of the trade.  Di Ivy and Elephants Fine Craft Guild

  1. I don't know if they truly all worked or not, but I'm sure some of them did and I do wish we still did some medicinal needs the old fashioned way. What a great collection of vintage pharmacy necessities!

  2. I agree, it would probably be good if we used more of the natural remedies today! Love all the old apothecary jars.

  3. Some unique apothecary items that I'd love to display! I enjoy vintage glass bottles and my collection seems to be growing. Clear, amber, and green are some of my favorites to find, collect, and show-off!

  4. Love, love the old bottles...
    I have several old bottles that I have collected over time and most I have found at an old glass dump just up the beach from mine. The find was wonderful but not so good for the beach areas nearby. During very high water a few years ago the water undermined a steep bank where from years back was on old bottle dump. The water dragged the bottles into the water, yikees! We have spent a few years now cleaning up all the bottles and such and think we have gotten most of it now.
