Thanks to Rhoda over at Southern Hospitality and her "Thrifty Treasures" party, I now have a whole new outlook when attending a garage/estate sale. I not only look for things that I can use or recycle, but I also look for items that would make a great "blog post". I hope everyone agrees that this TREASURE meets that criteria. For your pleasure may I offer these pictures of a September 1959 issue of Ladie's Home Journal. I was fortunate to find this among a bunch of other magazines that were priced right: 75¢ each!!!
I just love all the ads within these older issues.
Did you, your mom, or grandmother ever have any of these sets? Can you see the prices in 1959? $4.95 for the set of 4 bowls! WOW!
Here's some of the "FASHION SHOW" pages. Lots of fur accents--and not faux! Check out the jewelry--would be so stylish even today!
This treasure is being added to my collection of vintage magazines. I just love looking through them from time to time. If you want to see posts about some of my others, please let me know--I love to share the nostalgia!
