The sparkling glass shelves of our lighted display cases were the setting for showcasing a variety of glass, canning (fruit) jars. Flint colored, blue, green, and clear colors were in the majority of half-pints, pints, quarts, and 2-quarts. Some were shoulder seals, some lip seals, many "Ball" jars, and some Canadian "Crown" jars. Various magazine graphics also showed women "putting up" or admiring their preserves, fruits, and vegetables for the year's consumption.
