One of the great things about collecting vintage magazines--especially pulp movie and television star magazines--is the abundance of black and white ads on the back pages that promise everything from bust enlargement devices to weight loss gimmicks to....well, ads like the one to the right from 1960....
Yes, for only $1.49 -- plus fifty cents shipping and handling of course -- you too can receive a CHRISTMAS PACK with over 100 TOYS AND A CHRISTMAS TREE (actually it's a beautiful simulated Christmas tree). You also get a "hi-fi" album of 25 Christmas Carols thrown in as an "extra bonus"--sung and/or played by the unidentified.
Though we know this "Christmas Pack" was undoubtedly a disappointment to the person who sent away for it back in 1960, let's be honest. We wouldn't mind finding it in our mailbox today...if only to satisfy our curiosity. Click on the photo.
Yes, but it would cost you 11.90 in today's dollars. :-)ReplyDelete
Still want to see it! :DDelete
I wish I could send away for it now! When we bring home vintage magazines, we are fascinated by the ads inside too! (Rob)ReplyDelete
