Those Were The Days....

Inspired by my lovely friend (oooh, I hope I can call her that!) Lara with her always entertaining Vintage Crochet Fridays, I've decided to start my own weekly sharing session of vintage advertisements from my collection.

Aren't the little ladybugs around the border just so cute!? Love the sun suit at the top.

Is that Grandma or mum making that teen's dress? Either way, she's a pretty sophisticated and hip sewer. You might recognise this brand of zipper if you purchase zips from the op shop, like I do. Brand new zips in perfect order for 20c? Yes please!

More vintage advertisements next Friday.
