LADYSMITH, Va. (AP) — The remodeling of a Virginia corner store turned up documents that offer a peek into the past.

The Fredericksburg Free Lance-Star reports that a collection of “cash on delivery” records from the 1930s were found during the remodeling of the Ladysmith Citgo, which used to house the community’s post office.

The receipts detail how much people paid at the post office when they picked up items they ordered in catalogues. They show that one woman paid $1.28 for parts she ordered for her Studebaker automobile while another bought $7.05 worth of goods from a nearby dress shop.

Store Manager Laurie Leacock says she plans to display some of the documents around the old post office window in the store.
