Retro Tuesday: Vintage ads

I finally found a vintage magazine! It was hiding in my house (amongst other thing...) It's a 1962 Family Circle! YaY!

Do you thik Betty Draper ever served Chef Boyardi's meatball stew? I don't know...maybe to the kids?

The last time I ate canned meatball stew I nearly threw up..It felt like cat food.UGH!

Did you notice that the casserole is really big yet the recipe calls for only one can of stew?

I want a lettuce hat!!! It's the hot accessory this season! Probably not in the north with the frost...you would have a wilted hat!
How funny is that?
Yes I want a big bowl of greens drenched in chemicals! But that is not important. The important thing is the entertainment value of this ad and it's amazing!
Today's ads are never this cool!
Be sure to stop by Tracy's blog at www.crazysuburbanmom.com for more Retro Tuesday!
Later thrifters!

LOLOL! Omg, I so want a lettuce hat too...and I've never seen that ad!

And you're so right. The cans are always so small but the amount they show are sooooo big! Like a tub full of stew...or whatever that is :)

I love vintage magazines and will always buy them when I see them (depending on price, of course).

I grew up in NL and we regularly had canned meatballs in gravy. At the time (before I developed a taste for anything that even resembled healthy nutritious food), I loved it. Now --- BLAAH!!! My parents still love them. I guess it's just too late for nutrition for them!

That lettuce lady is beautiful! But who came up with such an idea?

P.S. Do you mind if I take a copy of her?

Be my guest Maureen! Thaks for asking that was very nice of you!

My guess is that it was inspired my Carmen Miranda who had a fruit hat in the 40's and 50's. But it's just a guess...
