There's no telling what things people are willing to collect (we get it) so naturally we were delighted to come across someone who amassed a collection of sugar packets & sugar cube packages. And not just any sugar packets mind you, but specifically ones from New York City right around 1964 at the time of the NYC World's Fair. Priced at just 50 cents apiece!
This collection includes 27 'packets' and 17 'cubes' most of which were sourced from New York hotels and eateries, such as:
The Madison Delicatessen, Howard Johnson's, Longchamps, Paris Cafe, Cookery Restaurants, Mister Kishka, Serendipity, Louis Sherry, Dickens Room, Prexy's, Schrafft's, Luchow's, The French Roumanian, New York's World Fair 64-65, Fifth Avenue Hotel, Toffenetti, Hotel Roosevelt, The Grosvenor, and more. Plus there are three Christmas holiday themed packets made by Domino Sugar.
NOTE: All packets/cubes are full of sugar. Most were made by Domino. Though we wouldn't recommend eating them.
Condition: Some paper fading has occurred, but otherwise in very good vintage condition. We were assured that these sugar packets were kept in a dark box in the same plastic bag for the past 60 years.
