Vintage Marketing

Ok, you've seen the inside and the vintage finds, but I saved the best part of The Candy Factory for last. Along the walls was a variety of vintage marketing material, which was used to sell ties, scissors, combs, and peerless goggles (wtf?). All of the pieces are original, but unfortunately not for sale...or else I would have snatched up those pocket combs. Aren't the colors great?! The boxes above the piano is the music for the piano...not sure how it works, but still looks neat.

After seeing these rare pieces marketing just doesn't seem quite the same anymore.

i'm so in love with these posts - they are great! i'm on the hunt for candy cigarettes - the chocolate ones in the paper wrappers. didn't see any did you?

Thanks for the sweet thoughts today. I needed to hear your college coming home experience.

A-M said...

Pianola rolls, maybe? Fantastic images... I wish we could go back just to see what it was like in that time! A-M xx

Yah for a time when things weren't overpackaged. You saw what you needed and took it down and either the display was refilled or the paper burned. Why, oh why, did it change?

Melissa @ The Inspired Room said...

Ah, yes, sweet stuff here today! I hate today's packages and all that horrid plastic protection everything comes in. Love the more simple days!

Happy Monday night!

A Print A Day said...

man, it seems like your flea markets there are awesome!!!

i love vintage marketing and ads. my fvourite ones are the old school matchboxes that look like they're edwardian or something.

mary said...

Old school marketing and advertising is fabulous. The fonts, especially, get me.

That set of combs is great - amazing how the colors all look great together, huh?!

Pravina Studio said...

Neat! I love old-timey general stores.

Camille said...

Your weekend photos are so much fun! I love the Peerless Goggles...particularly the white and blue ones.

please sir said...

THANK YOU - Lil Bee your comment made me smile so much! I would love to just tag along with you...no charge...haha!

Victoria said...

How wonderful! The scissors, the combs and the sunglasses, love 'em!

Anairam said...

Aaaaah, the combs! And the bowties! I love the cards on which they are displayed - I have some old vintage buttons that are still attached to the original backing - I can't bring myself to detach and use them!

Fog and Thistle said...

Something very charming about lots of the same items displayed together...like those combs and scissors.

Jacqueline said...

If it's a player piano, the music is fed into the piano, the piano reads the cut out pattern in the tin.....I think it's tin that was used.

jae said...

Love the peerless goggles....that's funny. Nice find.

M.Kate said...

the only time i see these stuff are at very old mini market in small town..but looks cute and cool anyway :)

JLC Studio said...

Wow!! This is incredible...and great photos! I love the combs!!

Hey Harriet said...

Love all these finds but I'm especially goin' ga-ga over those goggles!

pinkstilettos said...

How great! I love looking at vintage finds. They are the best. Daisy~

andrea said...

My father has a player piano like that. Inside the boxes are rolls of music with little notches cut out in patterns. You load up the rolls inside that little door on the front of the piano and the piano reads the little notches and plays the music. SOO much fun!!

blue moss said...
