Thrift Finds: Sexy Retro Ads

Saturday my roster was full, but I squeezed in time for a quick Flea Market pit stop. When I entered the hot and dusty  flea market my primal need to thrift evaporated, but I stumbled through all the aisles regardless. No major treasure was found, but I did encounter a vendor with a very tidy stall. He had records and plenty of neatly stacked retro advertisements carefully displayed in plastic sleeves, I flipped through all of them and decided on the following:

Pall Mall Cigarettes Ad
"Design, brother, modern design is plenty important!"
Too many Freudian phallic symbols in one picture, I tell you.

Ronson Lighter Ad
Ah, old-school masculinity, when a man had two expressions: a lascivious leer or a disdainful scowl.

Both ads will be framed and added to my "man corner" (where I have my pipe and red thrifted "man chair") and will likely be listed in my Etsy shop.

I also found some Sailor Moon S and Sailor Moon Super S video tapes. Sailor Moon is my guilty pleasure, I love watching this show- it's at once incredibly bad and endearing. Rabid super-animé color seizures don't hurt, either. At $1.00 each I went ahead and added these tapes to my collection of thrifted Sailor Moon tapes. These tapes are unfortunately from the American dubbed version of Sailor Moon. The voices are like nails on chalkboard  but that adds to the fun.

I didn't have a very productive thrift weekend like I'd planned. Right now I'm busy trying to decrease possessions and unpack art supplies so I can actually paint, sew, and work again. But after that herculean task is completed I'll have more room to store more thrifted junk. Ah, the cycle continues...
