Vintage Print Advertisements from Alesia’s Attic

As I mentioned in a previous post my mother and I started going through the many things our family has collected over the years to sell on eBay as we begin the process of downsizing. Within the many items we have around the house we found hundreds of old magazines, most in great condition and some dating back as far as the 1960s if not older.

I’ve begun a Vintage Print Ad business as I have really fallen in love with these old advertisements. I’m eventually going to fully get into the Ephemera specialty. I have found old Greeting Cards, Advertising Booklets, Recipe Booklets, so many of these type of items that I’m gathering quite an inventory.

Definition of Ephemera:

In a nutshell, to collectors “ephemera” are vintage printed or written items which originally served some specific purpose and were not expected to be retained or preserved, but which are now cherished.

Those items that do not sell on eBay will eventually be moved to this website and available for purchase. This is because I can only have so many items listed at one time on eBay and the goal with my shop there is to downsize the stuff my mother and I have amassed over the years.

Here are some examples of the current ads I have listed at eBay:

Photo is of actual original product that will be shipped, no reproductions sold. Rough edges on magazine glue side left untrimmed so buyer can trim as desired. Mild age related discoloration.

Happy Hunting!!
