Vintage Magazines

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.....

  1. You are not the only one buying for grands when they aren't even a "twinkle in someone's eye." And those old magazines are great. I have seen colored fridge shelves in Europe. Linda@Wetcreek Blog

  12. Lovely covers on the old magazines. I have an old Redbook magazine from the 1920s in a trunk in my basement. I should get it out and take pictures of it. I love all your collections.

  13. What a lucky find! I can't believe they didn't price them specially. I love how they provide a peek into domestic life in the past.
