Today I thought I'd post some advertisements from my 1948 Better Homes and Gardens magazine. This magazine was a Christmas gift from my Uncle Stan.
These are the days I wished my scanner worked! This baby is full of great ads! It's one of my top 3 favorite vintage magazines.
To start off, we have a 1948 ad for Crisco. It's the shortening I use.
Canned Cling Peaches
The little Peach Creature is kinda cute. Many ads seem to feature an anthropomorphic creature of some sorts. Here are a few more.
I know Mr. Peanut is somewhat collectible, but to me, he's just a bit creepy. I think my Dad (or Grandpa) had a Mr. Peanut mechanical pencil when I was a kid. Apparently, you can still buy them on Ebay for around $15.00.
That reminds me, I had a pen top once that had liquid in it and a little green tractor would drive through a field when you tipped the pen a certain way. I think that is cool, but would be distracting while writing a check.
Here's an ad for V-8...helping clever moms sneak vegetables into their children's diets since 1933.
Next up is an ad for Swan garden hoses. I especially like the house (no surprise there).
I like the house so much, I took a close up of it.
Coca-Cola Ads are a favorite! And I really like vintage gas station stuff, so this one is double nifty!
Bon Ami is another favorite!
Well, there are many more ads from this magazine, and I will eventually try to share them all. Every time I turned the page there was another great, colorful layout to shoot! But I do want to try and scan some of them soon. So, until another time, have a happy vintage day.
