Tru Ade vs Fanta Orange


We purchased "Fanta Man" at the  American Visionary Art Museum in Baltimore, MD.
We found the True Ade thermometer
in one of our old outbuildings. FYI...The hair is made from steel wool!

  4. It has been a long time since I've seen one of those bottle cap men!
    I've also not heard of Tru Ade (just as I hadn't heard of Frostop).
