If you are fond of something, by the way it looks, its function, and so on, you might feel the need to start collecting them. For people who collect retro milk caps, they feel nostalgic for the old days. The milk caps were used in Japan as "menko," small, flat cards that are slapped onto the ground to flip over another's. Menko games were popular in the old days among elementary school students. Nowadays, glass milk bottles are hard to find, replaced with paper cartons. And the old milk caps? Forgotten in the waste...or so we thought. You can marvel at the array of colors and designs of retro milk caps thanks to those who've kept them safely, cleaned and dried.
