ANOTHER THRIFTY TREASURE!!! 1959 LADIE'S HOME JOURNAL

Thanks to Rhoda over at Southern Hospitality and her "Thrifty Treasures" party, I now have a whole new outlook when attending a garage/estate sale. I not only look for things that I can use or recycle, but I also look for items that would make a great "blog post". I hope everyone agrees that this TREASURE meets that criteria. For your pleasure may I offer these pictures of a September 1959 issue of Ladie's Home Journal. I was fortunate to find this among a bunch of other magazines that were priced right: 75¢ each!!!

FRONT COVER:



BACK COVER:




I just love all the ads within these older issues.
Did you, your mom, or grandmother ever have any of these sets? Can you see the prices in 1959? $4.95 for the set of 4 bowls! WOW!




Here's some of the "FASHION SHOW" pages. Lots of fur accents--and not faux! Check out the jewelry--would be so stylish even today!





This treasure is being added to my collection of vintage magazines. I just love looking through them from time to time. If you want to see posts about some of my others, please let me know--I love to share the nostalgia!

I enjoyed looking at the pictures from your magazine. I have a set of those Pyrex bowls that were my grandmother's. Mine are the ones with the white background. I love the pattern on them. I would love to have some of the suits pictured on the pages of the magazine - so elegant.

I love vintage magazines. It seems like women then were so sophisticated, don't you think?

I love those pics in the magazine! The women's clothing was so much more feminine then. That aqua blue color was everywhere - I remember that we had an Oldsmobile with white about the side trim and aqua below the side trim! What a fun find - really a sort of history magazine! Linda

Oh, those old magazines are priceless! I love to look back in time to see what was popular back in the day. Hang on to that one!

I remember those Pyrex bowls too.

Neat pictures!! Some of those would be great framed, I think. :) I love our SA, and like you said, it's hard to find a parking spot these days. :) Thanks for visiting my blog!
