Happy Christmas season! Now that Thanksgiving is out of the way we can get down to business. CHRISTMAS SHOPPING! In between grabbing the best Black Friday deals, trimming our Christmas tree, and decking out our gingerbread house, I wanted to post some awesome vintage Christmas ads. Christmas shopping is in full effect so in honor of my favorite time of year (shop-a-holics unite) here are some of the best retro-fabulous ads I could round up!
A couple of my favorite lines from these ads…
“A few minutes of the lamp each day on your children will keep their cheeks from looking pale this winter.”
“Crisco. It’s digestible!”
Don’t forget! If you’re looking for a great vintage dress for you or your little girl this holiday season, be sure to check out the SHOP! A huge selection of the finest (and most fun) vintage frocks on the web!
Lately, I can’t get enough of vintage advertisements. I just love how DIFFERENT they are from today’s ads. With Thanksgiving just around the corner, I thought there was no better time to display some of these wholesome, down-home-feel ads from the days of yore. So grab yourself a turkey leg and check out these vintage gems! Tell me which one is your favorite. I find the cigarette and turkey one hilarious. Mmmm…cigarette-smoke-flavored turkey….NOT. Or how about that Seagram’s ad? I think they are trying to imply drinking is a part of a healthy lifestyle. And I love how they act like only men drink whiskey. LOL…oh, 1940s. You silly little sexist.
(Speaking of Thanksgiving…have you bought that special outfit for yourself or your little girl to wear at the dinner table? I always like to pick out a new outfit for special holidays. Be sure to check out the shop for great vintage dresses for you and your little girl this holiday season!)
Are you hungry now? I can’t wait for Thanksgiving. A plate full of turkey, stuffing, corn casserole and a slice (or two) of french silk pie awaits me! numnumnum
