Avoid This

Graphic overload

For a simple product you had to have a super information packed package
(a few little scare tactics never hurt either).
"Hey Mom and Dad use these or your Kid will fry like a frankfurter attached to a live power cord !!!"

Saving for Gas

Gassy's the place to save money to buy gas somewhere else.
They should have had a gas station out front.

My Card

Before opening this card I pictured a great home illustration.

Kind of a let down with just a plain old garage.

Add extra points for the Rock of Gilbraltar reference. With that great 3 years financing it will be paided off in no time.

Alpha Huff Original

Who is Alpha Huff?

I don't know but at $5.00 I just had to have it.

I got a great email from one of my blog readers with this info on the artist

Mrs. Alpha G. (Blackerby) Huff (1895-1990) was born near Tulsa, Oklahoma. She married Marcus Calvin “M. C.” Huff
in about 1916. They moved to the Los Angeles area in the mid 1930s where they lived in Monrovia until Mr. Huff died in
1959. After that, Mrs. Huff moved to Garden Grove, California. She passed away in San Bernardino County in March, 1990.

Thanks Joe!!

Spot on

I am find a new interest in those small little spot illustrations used so much in the 50's objects like metal clips, rulers, booklets, notepads and all that other mass produced promo stuff created back then. I bought a few pieces over the past weekend and here are the cuts....

After Dinner

Have a look at what the little lady brought home from the shop last week. There is something about a vintage moist towelette that makes my day.

non posting funk

Been in a sort of blog funk, but new post should be soon as there is too much stuff around me that needs to be shared with the world. Whether they like it or not.
