vintage craft: 1969 ads
A few years ago, I picked up this magazine at a local antique shop. It was only a dollar or two, and well worth it for the ideas featured in 1960-70. But the ads are nearly as good as the real content, and so I today I bring you...vintage craft advertising!
My grandma had some of this, and I've tried it. Interesting stuff...
No thank you!
These feel like classics.
...and groovy too!
But you really can't go wrong with a classic like this:
Even though this is for needlepoint/tapestry supplies, DMC will always be a favorite of mine.
Looking through all of them, I think I was most surprised by the number of full page ads that were in this magazine. There were a lot, and most were in full color. Many of them had the editorial look going, so you aren't quite sure if they are ads or articles at first.
When I see old ads like this, I wonder how many of the companies are still in business in one form or another. There are definitely some of these that are still going strong!
