This past week I drove to my daughter's for an overnight stay - of course, my first stop upon arriving was to check out the thrift shops - I went to four - all my purchases were made at the Salvation Army and all were paper, vintage magazines to be precise, they were just in a pile with the regular magazines, the posted price was 3 for $1 - I took every magazine there was - twelve in total. Anyone that follows my blog, knows that I love to find these old magazines!! I felt anxious when I went to the cash that they would really be some ridiculous prize, but they weren't - 3 for $1, just like it said. I know some shops would have these behind glass - it was my lucky day.
So, this will be a photo heavy post but those are ok, every once in a while. The magazines were all from the 50's and 60's - they're full of great illustrations, old ads - all the things that I like to look at!! If you follow me on Instagram, you have already seen a couple of them, but if you're not following me - why don't you? Right here! I took mostly individual pictures, just in case you would like to pin them, the covers are just so sweet!! Don't you agree?
You know that I always like to do posts from my old magazines with ads, so here's just a couple for now that took my interest.
I don't remember ever seeing a fridge with a coloured inside like this one!!
Look at all that pretty milk glass!
It sure looks like Loretta has a Pyrex bowl on her table!
There seems to be no end in sight for winter around here so here's something that can help us remember the lazy days of summer...
I also found a couple of vintage Wonder books, it was bad enough I started buying vintage Christmas books for those future grandchildren (there are none in sight) now I am buying Easter books too. Oh, no.....
