Vintage Stuff

An entertaining look back at 1951 Household magazine ads awaits you at The Swank Pad, a fantastic site full of kitschy nostalgia and snarky fun. I'm a little worried that this Stepford Wife has a waist that's smaller than the circumference of the average thigh. Come to think of it the dude looks like he's wearing trousers with about a 24" waist as well. Must have made shopping a real challenge.

And while you are there, be sure to check out the Vanishing America link, which contains some great examples of the unique neon signs, and 50's architecture that seem to be rapidly disappearing from our highways and landscapes.

Those ads do slay me. I don't know how women took it.
