And that’s how millions of people — like grandparents, neighbors, mom & dad’s coworkers and just random folks running errands — ended up with everything from boxes of chocolate bars to Christmas candleholders to first aid kits.
Here’s a look back at a few dozen of the things that kids used to sell!
