In an election year, politics is one of our main topics of conversation. Political buttons, banners, pins and even hats boasting the name of a current candidate are everywhere.
Collecting older political memorabilia is a fun way to remember our past—and you can find examples at many flea markets, antique stores, or even auctions.
I recently acquired a Frankoma Donkey mug from 1977 advertising the Carter and Mondale campaign. It was a great find—even more so since we are in the middle of another political season.
You can see this terrific mug in my Etsy shop here. Another area that you can run across are paper related items.
This could be photographs, invitations to an event, or even a print of a famous painting. I have a lot like this on eBay, which you can see here.
What kinds of political items have you run across?
