Room keys from the days when our home was an inn, a restaurant, a tavern, and a waterfront travel destination. We inherited these Sherwood Inn room keys (along with so many other cool artifacts) when we purchased Rosslyn. And, despite their practical irrelevance today, it’s hard to throw them away.

It’s fun to see the “Drop in any mailbox…” message on these vintage key fobs. Remember when that was a pretty common detail for hotel room keys? Of course, that’s when accommodations still handed out real keys. Nowadays virtually everything including room keys has switched over to digital. But a plastic card with a msg strip has a totally different vibe yo an imprinted fob and room key. Especially a skeleton key!
I don’t remember ever needing to mail a key back to a hotel, but it’s a super practical idea. I wonder if it’d still work… Modern key cards probably find their way into trash cans a lot more often than these old school forebears.
