I Pulled into One Yard Sale!

The last couple of Saturday's I didn't go to the post where they advertise all the yard sales, it gets so discouraging driving around and seeing the same old junk, I know I've found a few things lately, but it's hard pickin'.  This past Saturday I was on my way back from the grocery store, I saw a sign behind this old store that is no longer a store!!  I pulled in - it was mostly junk and nothing old that I could see, except this..


This is not your normal variety of vintage magazines, these were all publications that the store received - the advertising is completely different from magazines since it was geared to the merchant.    These magazines are from the 40's and 50's and notice the old box for Wabasso sheets!!


The majority of the magazines are Canadian but there are a few American ones as well.


War time ads regarding rationing..



Even a sample of the butchers paper...


I think this was a pretty neat find and it was a fundraiser, so payment was by donation.






I'll be using some of these for SMASHing but I'm thinking that maybe some of these ads might sell online....
