Apron


Title
Apron
Description
Aprons were another type of item that was given away as a free gift to farm families. This marketing tool was not only printed with a warehouses name and address, but it was also something that was used often on the farm. When cooking in the kitchen, farmwomen often wore dresses and could not change into “old clothes” just for the purposes of cooking. These aprons provided a useful way to “cover-up” and not get good clothes dirty. It was also another good way for a tobacco warehouses name to be seen. This apron was handed out by New Planters Warehouse, No. 1 and No. 2, Wilson, N.C. The accompanying video describes its use and shows an old photograph of a farming family. Date approximated.
