King Leo Display Stand-Standard Candy Co-Nashville
Item #: NEW-0015881

Click image to enlarge
This listing is for one stand, though I have two available. I bought the entire lot of five stands which were found in an old house state near Birmingham, Alabama.  Kind Leo is a product from Nashville's famous Candy Company, make of Goo-Goo Clusters and other items.  A can of King Leo Stick candy was a welcomed Christmas treat in my family. We fought over the clove sticks. 

The metal stand is wide enough for the can.  It measures 18 X 3 inches.  It reads King Leo Pure Stick Candy, manufactured by Standard Candy Company Nashville Tennessee with no zip code.  I'm not sure what box I have that this will fit into so I may have over-estimated the cost of shipping.  Excessive postage paid will be refunded.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sun_Drop

Sun Drop was developed in New Haven, Missouri, by Charles Lazier, a salesman of beverage concentrates.[2][3] While riding around town in the family car, Lazier quickly scribbled a recipe for a new soft drink on a small piece of paper which he handed to his son, Charles Jr. The younger Lazier worked as a lab technician at his fatherís plant, and soon began work on the formula. Two years later, Sun Drop Cola debuted at the American Bottlers of Carbonated Beverages Conference in Washington, D.C.[4] The Sun Drop formula was patented on April 15, 1930.
Sundrop advertising signs from the 1950s

The drink was marketed in several Southern states under names such as "Sundrop Golden Cola" or "Golden Girl Cola." The brand was acquired and standardized by Crush International in 1970. Crush International was purchased by Procter & Gamble in 1980, which sold its soft drinks holdings to Cadbury Schweppes in 1989. Cadbury Schweppes emerged in 2008, with its beverages unit becoming Dr Pepper Snapple Group, which currently produces Sun Drop.

Sun Drop has maintained popularity in many parts of the southern United States, especially in Tennessee, North Carolina and parts of the Midwest, including Wisconsin and western Minnesota. Similar to other regional drinks with a cult following, fans outside bottling areas have been known to pay large amounts to have the drink shipped to them. Families have sent it to U.S. soldiers serving in Afghanistan.

Colgans Taffy Tolu Chewing Gum Jar
Item #: NEW-0012940

Click image to enlarge
This should be a pretty scarce jar.  This one measures around 8 and a half inches tall and around 5 and a half inches wide.  Embossed lettering reads "Colgans Taffy Tolu Jar" on both sides.  There are several dings around the inner rim. The top is missing.

Here is a brief history of this company found on the web:

In Louisville, Kentucky, a drugstore owner named John Colgan sold gum from the balsam tree, flavored with powdered sugar. After Adams' son (who was a traveling salesman) paid Colgan a visit, he was sold on the merits of using chicle gum instead. Using the new chicle gum imported from Mexico, Colgan introduced a new, flavored gum called "Colgan's Taffy Tolu Chewing Gum." The product became an overnight success.

Sundrop Metal Sign-Rare Golden Cola
Item #: NEW-0011406

Click image to enlarge
This was actually a thermometer but it's hard to call it that as the thermometer is missing.  I believe it could be easily replaced as one could be fitted into the wooden holder on the back and can be reattached.  There is considerable wear to this sign which can be seen in the scan but I bought it as Sun Drop items are quite scarce.  I was unable to find on the web another example of this sign which appears quite old to me.  There is a marking at the bottom which reads 60 M17 C which could indicate it is from 1960. Heavy rusting at the top and along the edges.  Other rusty areas too numerous to mention.  Holes as made but the top hole has been expanded.  Dents in the Sun-drop bottle cap, a couple in the thermometer area and at the top edge.  Please study the scan carefully as the sign is being sold as is.
