A Hudson Valley Store Is Bringing Back a Nostalgic ’80s School Item
A store in the Hudson Valley is letting you party like it's 1985.
You don't even need a DeLorean to go back in time these days. All you need is a company so desperate for money that they'll do anything to feed your addiction to nostalgia.
I'm writing this at the risk of sounding like a complete dinosaur but I'm old enough to remember lugging around a backpack filled with papers, folders, erasers and even a massive pencil case. My parents made me walk to the bus stop everyday carrying a bag that weighed 3 times my size.
How did one stay organized with all those supplies? A lot of kids used plain old 3 ring binders. Sometimes you'd even have to use the one you kept your baseball cards in. We had to be resourceful. Cool kids walked around with a Trapper Keeper. I was not a cool kid. I know that might be hard to believe.
Now that I am all grown up and have money of my own I can spend it on dumb things like this to try to relive my childhood memories. Nostalgia is a powerful drug. I'm all for going back to fond memories but at no point does my highlight reel involve a classroom.
Maybe I'm just bitter because my parents didn't buy me a Trapper Keeper when I was a kid.
Whether you had one or not You can buy one now in the year 2021. Isn't that insane? I know kids will be shopping for school supplies soon. I'm not sure how a kid would need one of these when everything has gone digital but they're available at the WalMart in Fishkill.
