Vintage Magazine Ads as wall decorations
by: Chuck Young
Decorating with Vintage Magazine Ads

I have noticed a trend in decorating that I had no idea existed. It seems that many people are using vintage magazine ads as home decorations.

For example, if you have a home bar, you may be interested in framing some old Ballantines ale or Jack Daniels ads.

If your first car was a 1969 Chevelle, you may want to frame a vintage Chevrolet ad.

Colorful full page ads seem to spark the most interest although I have seen some really classic black and white ads. These ads from days gone by contain some truly classic looks that you just dont see today.

More than the classic looks, they provide a glimpse into a different time as well as how society viewed the world. For example, many of the cigarette ads from the 1940s 1950s feature prominent actors, actresses and sports figures. This is something you would never see in todays PC world.

At the other end of the spectrum, many of these past ads portray American life at home. Families eating meals together, traveling together and well.just plain being together.

This trend lead me to start collecting and eventually selling these classic ads. Since creating my online store I have heard some really great ideas. The latest was a customer that was going to wallpaper their bathroom with vintage soap and perfume ads. Truly creative!
