Speaking of phone books, when's the last time you saw an actual phone booth?   Now if you find a rare pay phone, it's just fastened to a wall.  If it's outdoors, it's on a post.

They made great bus shelters and if you're Superman, they're a necessity. 8)

You don't have to worry.  Superman changes at the washroom in the local Starbucks now, where he quickly checks his email, updates his Facebook status, and grabs a caffeine fix before jetting off. 8)

Didn't he once also use a rapidly-spinning revolving door?

I think that was WonderWoman.  I could be wrong though :-\.

I believe he used that on the TV show "Lois and Clark" a couple times.

Body Shop "Green Apple" bath/shower gel, and foam bath.

They did revive it for a short period about a year ago, and I laid in a stock, but it is getting low alas. The bathroom smelled sharp and crisp, like an apple.

And when I tried to get Tea Tree Oil soap from Body Shop the assistant said people prefer facial washes, but I like soap for my hands. 

There used to be a shop called "L'herbier de Provence" in Camden, London UK, and they did two perfumes, Vervaine and Citron Vert, both lemony, but the firm closed down.

Stick stain remover for clothes.

It was kind of like a deodorant stick.  You would use it on a stain when you were throwing your clothes in the laundry basket and it would activate in the washer.  I loved those things, since I can never remember to check my clothes over for stains as I'm throwing them in the washer.

I've been looking but I can't find them any more.

I get them at WalMart.  Love them!  If I don't treat the stain immediately I will forget about it until I've dried it in!

Hmmmm...  I'm not a fan of WalMart but I might have to have a look.

I don't even have a company to blame for mine. 

I can't get Lady Apples in my area.  They are tiny apples (ususally could finish each in two or three bites) that are just a touch sweeter than the larger apples.   Their diminutive size means they aren't big sellers in the apple arena, so most orchards don't grow them.

We had one grocery store that would on rare occasions have them in stock (no idea where they got them from), but that store is now closed, so now I am out of luck.

Haven't read the whole thread but if youe  in Texas I may be able to help you on this!!

I thought of another one...Black Jack gum. I guess I'm one of the few who like black licorice flavor. I haven't seen it in stores for 20 years.

I guess Amazon has it for sale. I just can't bring myself to order gum from the internet and have it shipped to me.

Are you near a Cracker Barrel?  They sell it in the gift shop there.

Where are you? If  you are in Western NY Vidler's carries it. If not I can send you some.

Pine Brother cough drops.  Man, I miss those things.  I still think about them all the time.  They were so good.

Do you mean the spray that had the fake peppermints in the bottle or the earlier one with the fake ice cubes?  I thought those were so cool.

Unfrosted Cherry poptarts.  The store brand just isn't the same and I do not eat strawberry anything due to an allergy.

Lemon Thins.  Round flat cookies with brown edges with lemon flavoring.  I've seen "Brown Edge Wafers" and orange thins but they are not the same.
