I need help like no other person has needed help before.
Well, maybe it's not that bad. Yet.
I have a problem.
I love to collect old ads. I have a collection that spans the 1930s to the 1980s.
Now. What can I do with them?
The food ads are getting modpodged onto a piece of sheet metal that will serve as a magnetic reminder board ala the one at Target. I am even taking spoon and fork drawer pulls and making them into magnets.
The ads with those great midcentury houses and interiors will become a part of an art project that is a cross between modern art and a designer's idea board.
Now, on to the rest...cars, airlines, public utilities, travel, girl-y products...

Oh, oh post some pictures if you can please! Gosh, use them to make cards, journals, handmade books, etc. Scan them before you use them, so you can always print them out again and use them again!

Oh, they are glorious!
I have some from when Spam first hit the market.
And Preperation H!

The great thing is, even though my collection is HUGE, I have never seen a duplicate ad in the Taschen Ads book series.

The interiors are the ones I cherish. Armstrong flooring ads are the best.

You could put them under glass on a table.  I did this with some food product lables on my kitchen table and it is neat.  I bought the glass from a glass shop, cut to size and edges rounded.  Then I put some rubber circles between the glass and table to keep the glass from moving.   I've never had any problems with it either.

Strange question: Anyone have the old Pepto-Bismol ad saying "Johny ate the ginger cake.   Pepto-Bismol he should take."  Not sure on the year.  I've looking for that for 5 years now.  Long story.  Even a scanned image would thrill me to tears. PM me if anyone has it. Thanks! Cheesy

oh agreed! i love all those linoleum patterns and colors!

ok - make wallets - that's my new thing right now - haha - i will make a wallet out of anything. or decopage your kitchen cabinets, or the recessed part of the doors on a hutch.

seriously, senor, you are one lucky coconut. whatever you decide to do with them will be great. the best part will just be enjoying them as you go along.

Armstrong put out a book containing their ads. You might want to check it out. Pretty cool.

yeah u could scan them and then take those images and transfer them onto like, tote bags or something.

another thing i was thinking was possibly take the ads and kinda varnish them to a coffee table and then go put some plexiglass over it or something and you've got a cute little table.
