    Avon, Coppertone, Cover Girl, Jantzen, Maybelline, Pendleton – I’ve purchased their products, even if not the ones advertised above. Some items predate even me! (age 84)

    I remember Dolcis. They were quite expensive if I remember right.
    And the Pendleton Sportswear. Are they serious with those heels?

  6. Wow, BoB. What a great post to accompany your return!

    Oh, those “glamorous” glasses in the top ad – My Aunt Helen’s eyewear.

    Interesting and amusing to compare the elegant depictions of ladies in older ads with, like, that pastel rainbow Hang Ten gal’s awkward pose. Not a good look, dear.

    Also, I’m no hoplophile, but looks to me like all four of those “cowgirls” in the Lee ad are exhibiting poor trigger discipline.
