LaPlace Frostop Memorabilia

Through the years we have managed to keep a few great pieces of Frostop memorabilia, we have also managed to buy back some great things on ebay that we didn't think about keeping!
Original picture of the building - guess we can call that our baby picture!
One of the greatest pieces that we have is the original metal patent.
We also have a pretty decent collection of all of our old mugs - original logo, 70's logo, and our LaPlace Frostop logo.
1950's logo

1970's logo

Our LaPlace Frostop logo

Some other great items include a copy of a menu from the late 50's, an ad describing the Lot-O-Burger.

Counter menu pad from the early 1960's- we still take orders on a similar pad today!
We have an actual Frostopics from 1963.

An actual coupon for a free root beer with purchase of sandwich.

Hot dog bags from the 70's

Still trying to find a Frostop cup from the 1970's - I was outbid on ebay trying to win two cups!

An original Frostop cup from the 50's - the two pictures below show both front and back. It was the picture on the front of this cup that inspired our 50th anniversary shirts and souvenir cups.

Currently one of our greatest pieces of memorabilia is our restored wooden root beer barrel on display in our Frostop memorabilia corner.
Three original Frostop signs that I won on ebay and had them framed to go in our Frostop memorabilia corner.
