YAAAAAAAAAAAAAAY!! I was worried about you, traveling in the heat. I said a prayer for you. ❤
Awww, thanks, Lady Q. Everything went well, thanks be to God.
I love these series. Brings back lots of good memories despite the sexism. I had one of those flicker shavers at some point. That Palmolive commercial with Madge seems to have run for decades and it was so stupid. It’s an early indicator that the key to advertising is simply repeating your product name as often as possible no matter how absurd the use case.
Oh wow… that pantyhose… that’s a real burn. Ouch
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?
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.
Bette Davis, Maybe a young Jodie Foster, and maybe a Joan Crawford … not bad. 😀
Don’t forget Shelley Hack. 🙂
Oops 😀 … wasn’t she a Charlie’s Angel at one point? 🙂
Yes, for about a year, I think.
This was fun! I remember many of these.
Yep, me too.
Too many comments to make! Always love the old ads.
Welcome back! 😀
