Exploring Old Kitchen Advertisements
Vintage Ads on Pinterest.com
So I decided to create a board on Pinterest.com called "Advertising For Kitchen Kitchens" . I am really developing quite a nice library of old magazine ads and other promotional materials which collectors are sharing through their Pinterest.com boards.
I especially enjoy the vintage ads that show sets of housewares or dishes. You really get a chance to see what a complete set would look like and how much the values have changed over the years. It is actually quite amusing to see Pyrex bowl sets for pocket change or Riviera Dinnerware advertised for 95 cents!
