Printed Feed and Seed Bags
[Return to Topics]

I have over 50 printed feed and seed bags, some burlap, some canvas, that I saved from a barn being demolished. Most are in very good shape; a few have holes. Some collectors have expressed interest in them but I don't know what would be a fair value if they make me an offer for any. Does anybody have an idea?

WSF- This topic brings back memories of when I was a little kid. Mom, Gram, and the neighbor families, used cotton feed sacks to make underwear and shirts for us kids.

They came with all sorts of colorful print designs, probably as part of the feed company's marketing strategy. They were a tight knit soft cotton fabric, very similar to modern underwear. That was during the late 30's and on thru and after WWII. Thanks for the memory, IHank

That's why I saved them from destruction: they are a piece of history and a precious memory to folks.

If by any chance there is a "Rocket Brand Potatos, Johnson Bros Farm", sack in there, I'd be very interested in it. It would be a 100 lb burlap sack at least 30 years old, as that's when my dad and his brother stopped raising spuds. They would most likely be found in any potato growing region, as we raised mostly certified seed potatos and shipped all over.

Sorry, none of that brand in this batch. It's mostly cattle, hog, and poultry feeds, along with corn seed, timothy seed, one flour sack, and a few fertilizer sacks.

Didn't figger there'd be one there, but I'd hate to find out someday you'd tossed the whole works out because all they were was some old "Rocket Brand" sacks that nobody wanted. Thanks for checking.

I'll sure keep that name in mind in case I run across one somewhere. I'm a big packrat, so I'd never toss these out, I'd just do like the old farm where I found them: string lines in the loft rafters and hang the bags up there out of the way.

You can go to eBay and do a search for "old feed sacks" and check out what comes up. After that, do a search for "old seed sacks". You could probably sell them there, or at least find out a 'going' price for them. Good luck!

Thank you for the suggestion. I'll give it a try!
