Today, a blast from the past—some old advertising giveaways from Chattanooga, Ohio, businesses.
I enjoy collecting these items and they sure bring back a lot of memories. Memories of some businesses that were once in Chatt—Fisher Hardware, Wendel Brothers Motor Sales, Heffner’s Grocery, and the Chatt Home Restaurant.
A tear-off shopping list from Heffner’s Grocery:
A pretty picture and thermometer from Wendel Motor Sales. We always called it Wendel’s Garage.
This piece was made in Monroeville, Indiana.
Most of the advertising items I have are from Fisher Hardware. Fisher’s had a nice hardware and appliance store and they sold John Deere implements as well.
From Fisher Hardward, a perfectly good fly swatter, in nearly-new condition.
The Farmer’s Pocket Ledger, 1953-54, compliments of Fisher Hardware.
Some items from the Chatt Home Restaurant and Bar.
The Chatt Restaurant and Bar is the only one of these businesses that is still open today.
I hope these items bring back some pleasant memories for you, too, and that you enjoy reminiscing about the bygone businesses in Chatt.
Karen, I have a glass Norman Rockwell picture from Grandpa’s grocery store. It does not say anything about the store on the front but it has a label on the back. Remind me to send you a picture of it if we ever get moved into our house.

I would love to see it! Send me a photo of it and, if you don’t mind, I will add it to the post. I thought about his store but I don’t have any advertising items from it.
Enjoyed seeing the items from Chatt Home Restaurant and Bar. My Aunt Twila and Uncle Barney owned and operated the place for many years until their retirement.
So glad you enjoy seeing the photos again. Twila and Barney are great folks and we always enjoyed seeing them at the Chatt Bar. Thanks for writing!
