Does anyone, apart from me, remember collecting 'Scraps' from their schooldays? ............. I know it was probably a generation thing, but when I was at primary school, as well as playing marbles, collecting and swapping cigarette cards (from candy cigarettes of course!), swapping beads and buttons from an old tin - we also collected 'Scraps' and kept the sheets in an old book in sets on different pages, and swapped them! There were crinoline ladies, (probably my favourites), flowers, historic portraits - and lots of other pretty things. It was a girly hobby of course.

What an interesting concept. I don't remember collecting anything at all when I was younger. Baseball cards for the boys is all I can think of but nothing for the girls. Not a Canadian thing (at least not in the 1950s - 1960s)

Hi Dolores, thank you for your comment. Maybe collecting 'scraps' was just a British thing?!
