Yesterday morning was officially Thanksgiving, our visitors had left and there was an auction taking place about 40 minutes away - we went but we didn't even get out of the car, there was no place to park and it looked like the whole auction was taking place in a small garage, there wasn't a hope that you could even see anything for all the people, so we left and went down the road to the "flea market" - look what I found - Good Housekeeping from December 1946. There were a few magazines and I did buy another one which I'll share again, but I knew this one would be interesting because it was the Christmas copy. The magazine is thick - 246 pages, it's chock full of great old advertisements, fashions, articles, stories - I've gone through it a couple of times already and I've seen something different every time.
Here's a peak at some of the pages, I could be making collages but then you don't get the same look at the pic. Click on anything for a closer view.
This ad for Cannon Towels is on the inside cover - Canon advertises sheets, blankets and stockings, I never knew they made stockings... I guess they did back in 1946.
This is the back cover - and there's a recipe!
Camay soap - I can remember having that, I think I've seen it at the dollar store but it can't be the same as it used to be...
A Glasbake Tubular Cake Dish, made by McKee, Jeannette, PA.
Wear-Ever Pressure Cooker
Isn't this a sweet old ad??
There was even an ad for Pyrex - look at the size of that gift set, eleven pieces for $4.90!!
Judy Garland was advertising Max Factor lipstick - she looks so pretty there!
"Our pop says "Chap Stick" was his buddy when he fought the war." Hah!
Wasn't Philip Morris one of the companies that was depicted on Mad Men?
Mom had a small bottle of Evening in Paris, I can still see that little blue bottle..
There are a couple of old movie ads - this is a great one!
I never expected to see a Dionne Quints ad - especially not after I just found that Dionne book when I was on vacation. There's pages and pages of these small black and white ads - Musterole does not sound good at all!!! I went further along in the magazine and there was another Dionne ad...
I love finding old magazines like this and it's not often that I do - each magazine was $3 - I think it was worth it. Hope you enjoy the sneak peek!
I just realized my last post was my 300th one, onward to quite a few more..
