Service Station for Ever Sharp Pencils, 1921

Remember when we used to repair things instead of throwing them out and buying new? Barrett’s of Skidmore, Missouri helped with that very task, as we see in the Skidmore News’ May 19, 1921 edition, page 8:

Advertisement is illustrated with a drawing of an Ever Sharp pencil.  Ad reads, "Service Station, Ever Sharp Pencils.  Has your Ever Sharp met with an accident. We are in a position to restore it completely at a nominal charge.  New Points. New Clips. New Caps. New Magazines. Let us make your Ever Sharp more efficient.  Barrett's."
