Welcome to Savta Dotty's Treasure House! It is chock full of things you have never seen before, and probably never even heard of!
For example, an authentic Skate Key, circa 1944. Wow! Is this cool or what?
Long before there were skateboards and inline skates that look like ice skates, and metal scooters, we used to have roller skates with ball bearings, for sidewalks only. They were four-wheel metal platforms that we attached to our shoes. No sneakers, platforms, flipflops, just sturdy oxfords or saddle shoes. We used a skate key to tighten the skates so they didn't fall off the shoes, although there were also straps. The keys were either worn on a string or shoelace around one's neck or kept in a pocket.
How many people do you know who still have their skate keys?
That's why her Skate Key is one of Savta Dotty's Treasures.
Ya'll come back real soon to see more Treasures!
