Weird old crap shopping guides in old magazines!!!
Some of them are Christmas related and some of them aren’t and some of them are through the mail and some aren’t, but they are all “buy this stuff!!!” related so I figure that counts for what I’m aiming for here.
So without further yammering (yeah right) I present you with….
Things you could have bought (most of it out of magazines and through the mail!) if you were so inclined in the 50s and 60s!
I really kinda dig that domed plexiglass serving dealie! But that could just be cause of the jello salad looking stuff in it.
This one for new toys says “concluded” but I don’t know where the other part is. But man – that magnetic chicken puzzle is cool! And the Deluxe Camper…holy crap! I love you little green camper!
We actually had one of those rubber Improve Your Figure things hanging on a door handle somewhere in the house I grew up in. Actually I think there were two different models. I wonder if they were procured through the mails?!?
I actually have a couple of those Colored Lotus Bowls!
Man – I dig that Electric Hot Pot and the Automatic Hand Sewing Machine and the Clean-sweep Vacuum For Cars – even though it’s entirely possible that they would all last about 10 min. And Believe it or not I actually used to have that From Egg to Chick thing. I sold it on eBay long ago. It only hatches one egg! What good is that?
I do dig those odd shaped Floral China Bone Dishes. I wonder if that’s a sneaky way of saying that they aren’t made of Bone China.
Oh man! Leopard print safari booties!! Those are def for me. Maybe I could wear a rooster slipper on one food and a leopard bootie on the other.
And who woulda thunk that Spencer Gifts would sell Snow Skates. Huh.
