Vintage Thingie Thursday


Each Thursday Coloradolady entertains us with a wonderful vintage party.  You are all invited.  It starts at http://coloradolady.blogspot.com


Not sure of the date of this sign, but it has to be back in the 50's at least.  Nothing has been a nickle in a long time. I researched it, but could not find this exact one.
Did you know that during 1932 - 1934 time frame, you could but a Chippendale mahogany sofa for $135.00? However, in those days that was a lot of money.

Hi There, I definitely remember Betsy Boop!!!!! And I also remember how cheap everything used to be.. But--like you said, we didn't have much money back then --so $135 was ALOT of money!

Hugs,
Betsy

Funny how much inflation is after a century. Though I figure it's not as bad to lose a twenty today as it would have been in 1910.

What a fun find, LV. I see Betty Boop posing for Ads of all kinds, but with vintage Coke Signs being one of the most popular collectables out there, this one would be pretty rare. A great share for VTT.
