Upcoming Events!!

Reminder, if you were without power, internet, etc you are more than welcome to post an ad in disguise (the tag is annual amnesty).....

November 15th Icon Post Day: you can post a post with just icons made from vintage ads (they don't even have to have been posted here, just a vintage ad is the only qualifier)....

Weekend Event Friday November 16th thru Sunday the 19th: Ads with FURS yes, notify PETA now to toss red paint on us. Red paint ads will also be acceptable! But vintage ads with FURS. Yes, you can have fun with that, but please put them behind a cut if warranted ;) [Surgeon Moderator's Warning: We here at vintage ads do not condone the harming of animals in any way shape or form. I did once try on a $90,000 Russian sable coat in a Saks 5th Avenue in Cincinnati in the 80s though just to mess with a snooty clerk. But a vintage fur is one that is obviously vintage and no current critter has been harmed in it's making.]

One Day Event Thursday November 22nd: Thanksgiving here in the states, let's have FOOTBALL ads! Yes, i am sure the week prior to Thanksgiving we'll have lots of Thanksgiving ads posted!

Weekend Event Friday November 23rd thru Sunday the 25th COFFEE ADS and ZOMBIE MOVIE TRAILERS!!! In the States is something called 'black friday' which is not the awesome Steely Dan song, it's when people camp outside stores all night to rush in at 3am to get something on sale. Then by 2pm that day many are still on the road going from store to store. Truly, to me, this is as close to a zombie apocalypse as any we'll face. I no longer leave my house on that day unless it is a vet emergency. So COFFEE ADS AND ZOMBIE MOVIE TRAILERS!!!!

FINALLY!!! Starting November 26th thru December 3rd, our NOVEMBER contest!!! BATHROOMS!!! with all the other events, people who might be traveling with the long weekend in the states coming up, i figured this was probably the best time to have our november contest....

Weekend Event Friday November 30th thru Sunday December 2nd: Smoking Ads [Surgeon Moderator's Warning: We here at vintage ads cannot condone smoking as beneficial for your health. Tobacco has been shown to cause many illnesses and diseases. Even natural herbs when smoked might cause, oh wait, they don't cause illnesses and diseases. Well, smoking can be bad, mmmmkay? We're all adults though and this warning was done in jest. Jest, moi?!]

Weekend Event Friday December 9th thru Sunday December 12th: uh, i'm undecided....we are gonna do ads from a decade in december but i can't think of a decade off hand and also it's been suggested we do a weekend of ads focusing on a color....i think once we sort out what the contest is, that might help decide this weekend event....feel free to toss more ideas my way!!

Starting Monday December 13th our DECEMBER Contest, theme is----we don't know yet....we've done holiday ads before, that doesn't mean we can't do them again, but do we want to for a contest? i can pull a few out of the hat that we can choose from....
