A VCR for almost $500… those were the days, weren’t they?

    1. Those were the days when a 19″ portable TV was close to $300 (black and white, which they were still making then, were a little cheaper). The last TV I bought (a 32″ which still had a picture tube and still works) was around $200. You can get a lot more TV for that now.

      1. No doubt. But you know I still have my Grandmother’s sewing machine, made back in the 1930’s for which she paid $10 a small fortune back then. Work with it supported her family until she died in 1972. The sewing machine still works. My repair guys tells me to never, ever get rid of it. “They don’t make them like this anymore.” lol

    1. Do you remember what a rush it was when the whole family would get in the car on the spur of the moment to go do something like look at Christmas lights or get ice cream? You were getting out of the house, after dark, and doing something different for a change. Now, it’s like, yeah, whatever…

  2. We sure have come
    A great long way since VCRs – and I guess they were not super cheap back then – did not realize that.
    Walked by some huge TVs earlier this month and was wowed by how inexpensive they (50 inch) were compared to 2006- but they even had 60 inch – and under a thousand dollars

    1. We still have a 32″ TV with a picture tube, and I think a similar-sized flat-screen TV costs about half of what we paid for our current one. I keep hoping it goes so I can justify a new one…
