One of my favorite things from Brimfield was the vintage advertising. You could tell it was a popular genre because a large number vendors had at least a couple pieces. My one regret was not purchasing some metal typepress advertisements. How cool would it be to take a plain piece of fabric and press a variety of advertisements on it? I think it would be quite cool.
Unfortunately not only did I fail to purchase any of them I also didn’t take any photos. But I did snap shots of some other gems
Metal signs are always fun. And who doesn’t want to know where they can get candy AND cigarettes?
Honestly this wood box scares me, is “improved butter color” really what “makes butter perfect”? Or perhaps it’s the fact that I imagine that the improved color was coming from additives.
But my absolute favorite advertising aid was this salesmen’s kitchen display set. I can’t even imagine a time when a door to door salesman would come knocking to sell me a new kitchen using a display set from his briefcase. But it sure does look cool!
