Recently I posted a blog about a company that sells reproduction mid century ads. Here are some more pertaining to home products. I must admit that some of the images seem more current than I thought they would be. Back in the 1950's and 1960's, the name of the game seemed to be "more is more" as opposed to our current lifestyle that is obsessively clean-lined and simple.
