I hope all of you had a wonderful Thanksgiving. We have enjoyed every minute of having our boys under the same roof! We have played Canasta, watched movies, eaten way too much food, and reminisced of times gone by. Since my focus has been on my family, my post for Saturday is short, but centers on what is on many of our minds...buying gifts. Take a step back in time with me and enjoy these vintage ads.
What do you think about this gift? She looks happy!
This reminds me of Miracle on 34th Street. Only the original version for me!
I love this picture of the family. Look at the way she is looking at her husband. I think this is better than the Hoover!
Or what about this vintage ad from the 1930's? This saying is true for all times.
A pair of stockings makes a merry gift! I wonder how hard it was to keep the seam straight in the back?
"Christmas lives forever in the hearts of children"
Another ad for a phonograph!
This ad was from the 1920's. I found several ads for Kodak cameras from that era.
What a wonderful gift this would be...
West Bend was reminding everyone to shop early. I wonder if the writer of this ad would ever have imagined camping out on Thanksgiving evening just to catch a few great deals?
Even today, you know it is Christmas when you hear the Norelco ads on the tv!
Little Jack Horner wants Rice Krispies in his stocking! What about you?
I like this one. It has a whimsical quality about it.
I hope you enjoy the rest of your Thanksgiving weekend! And for those of you getting out in the pre-Christmas frenzy, happy shopping!
