I can’t believe it’s that hallelujah time for Back-to-School. Aside from buying essential school supplies and new clothes, I am reminded of that fundamental back-to-school accessory from my childhood and that was the tin lunchboxes with matching thermos. Lunchboxes were the fashion statement over the brown paper bag, and students who carried one were considered oh so cool.
Nowadays lunch containers come in many sustainable designs, but for me, the vintage lunch boxes were quite an art statement as much as it was a hip, school fashion accessory. Did you have a metal or tin lunchbox? If so, what kind? Come, let’s take a quick trip down vintage school lunchbox memory lane.
Back-to-School Days are here again
the halls are bustling with noise again
so let’s sing a song of homework again
Back-to-School Days are here again!
