We’re feeling very vintage with these 1950s and 60s Valentine’s Day newspaper advertisements.
First up, who doesn’t love the gift of perfume? Oh to be a Valentine in the 1950s with Chanel No. 5 for only $3.50!
Does anyone out there remember long-distance telephone service? This vintage ad promoted calls to your sweetie for only $2.00 (+10% federal tax).
Mmm, Russell Stover candy still warms my heart. Growing up in Kansas, Stover was the gourmet chocolate. Did you know that Russell Stover was the first candy company to use heart-shaped boxes for Valentine’s Day?
If you are a fan of vintage ads that are a bit odd. I guess getting Valentimed is better than getting two-timed.
Love this mid-century ad with a heart sketch and some bracelet bling.
There’s nothing like a passbook savings account to warm a girl’s heart.
A hat? We couldn’t agree more!
Love the way you do things! Sending loving thoughts to a lovely lady.
Thanks Margaret. Happy Valentine’s Day to you!
Just now found this in my in box! What the heck was up with that I don’t know but happy to have seen this after all.
Love the old adds. thanks.
Great selection of Ads Madge! Thanks so much!
