Treasures from
the
Ace Store Attic

b
John Layto

John presented a fascinating program depicting life in Paradise Valley, through the lens of artifacts found at the local General Store! Many items date back to
the late 1800s, and some are recognizable as more modern products. All of these goods were found while cleaning out the Ace Store's attic - some kept for future generations to enjoy, others left for them to eventually dispose of.  These artifacts illustrate how folks existed in years gone by. In addition to storage, this attic was even
used for sleeping quarters in the summers. You may have identified with some of the items John
talked about!
