A Vintage Permit to sell cigarettes, cigarette papers, tubes and wrappers for a market in Morley, Iowa which had Bonnie and Clyde history – perfect for your home bar, restaurant décor, outside pool décor and many, many more applications
This permit was issued July, 1969 and belonged to Bargers Grocery from Morley, Iowa. When we obtained this certificate (along with others such as cigarette, milk dealers license and egg retailers license) we were told that Bonnie and Clyde had visited this market and bought a Pepsi. The story is that they walked in, bought their Pepsi and were very nice. Is the story true? Who knows? When we asked for verification of this story they thought perhaps these permits would help. Needless to say these permits do not prove anything but what we can say is that there is “something” valid to the story as we didn’t hear this story until after we had purchased a door from the market and the tale was told. This account of Bonnie and Clyde had been passed down from two generations and we had no reason to disbelieve.
