Retro Tuesday:New Vintage Ads...
As I mentionned before, I went thrifting with my Dad last Saturday. He brought me to one of his favorite places, one he has been going to for more than 40 years... Turns out he donate/sold a lot of his overflow there...It's a magical kinda place, a mysterious treasure cave...3 floors of wonderful stuf! Most of it vintage and antique clothes ,linens and accessories but also glassware and kitchen stuff. I thought I would just drop dead of awe!
And there were vintage magazines....lots of 70's and 80's but I spied a couple of 50's and 60's beauties. And best of all since Dad is a friend they gave them to me! A gift of vintage joy! I spent all of Saturday night leafing through them....Good times!
Now for some ads! These are from a Ladie's home Journal November 1941. Yes 1941!
Ok this first one floors me. Has anyone ever tried this? Itchy scalp cured with Listerine? Let me know. I have a feeling it burns like the dickens!Aren't all wieners skinless now? I found it funny. Look at the kid's face! All excited there's no skin.... Check out the serving plate with Mister & Misses Wiener that is priceless!
And last but not least...For all you gelatin fans out there....
Keep in mind that it has been voted America's no.1 salad! That is hilarious. It's a wonder the allies won the war....What about the ring of red stuff, probably ketchup but the recipe doesn't mention it. What about drinking Knox? That is a novel idea. Has anyone drank some? Let me know.
I look forward to posting more vintage mag snipits over the next few weeks... Have a Happy Retro Tuesday and visit Tracy (CSM) here for more cool retro stuff.
P.S: I'm really excited because I'm using the new blogger editor for the first time! It's a breeze! Thank Mub for the hints! :)
