Thinking about my childhood brings to my mind what a penny would buy. It could buy a piece of candy, a one cent post card, bubble gum and oatmeal cookies, that were kept in a jar on the store counter. When I was three years-old I would climb into a chair and dry dishes. My mother would give me a penny to do this. I would then put the penny into my bank.

I remember my first purchase at three-years-old. It was a kiddie car I bought for 75 cents from my little friends who no longer wanted it. I still have it.

There is a store in Marshall, Texas, that still sells penny candy they keep in a large wooden keg. They also sell bottle Cokes for five cents.
