Vintage first aid kits find a new home

We love a bit of first aid history, and this week we were lucky enough to receive two beautiful, vintage first aid kits to include in our display cabinet! We always find it so interesting (and sometimes amusing) to see how first aid techniques and supplies have changed over the years, particularly the treatment for snake and spider bites.
 
Thank you to Sam and Tess for rescuing these kits from being thrown away, for cleaning them up and for reaching out to donate them to us so they can be enjoyed by more people. We were very pleased to do an exchange for some new kits, because let’s face it, the supplies in these old kits are probably well out of date.
