Advertising Freebies

Incredibly cute. Love how they use the spool of thread for a drum.

Beautiful seed packet. The flowers are amazing and the typography is lovely.

Beautiful

I love everything about this. The child, the palette, the soft colors, the typography. Yum.

Simply gorgeous in everyway!

Very cute.

This is my favorite, but I have a thing for owls.

This week for my freebies I thought I would give you some samples of products available way back when. I love the graphics that they used to advertise the different products, from flower seed to mustard. When I go to the grocery store or drug store today I am so unimpressed with the packaging of the products I am buying. I want glass instead of plastic. I want bold graphics. I want interesting typography. Is any one out there listening?

these ads are great!! loved them all..my favorite being the cigar butterfly!!!! i must say..i do love the smell of a good cigar or pipe..even a cigarette for that matter! Pity the health risks though.
you are so right about the packaging...i bought bakery bread yesterday and the cellophane bag was so cheaply made that it got a small tear in it already!
thanks for sharing these beauties with us..and i hope you are having a lovely weekend!! mine is quiet..all 3 grandkids are visiting with their fathers until tomorrow.

I have to agree with you - packaging these days is so bland and I just love to buy something that looks lovely on the shelf. Thank you for making these available
