[sticky post] Welcome to Vintage Ads!!

Welcome!!! Please read our community rules (not many, but alas they are necessary) right here !!

If you wish to know the latest events happening here's our upcoming events here!! Here's a link to the alphabetical upcoming event calendar if you are looking for a specific type of event/theme here.

If you have some ads you'd like to post for an event but won't be around or available, here is how to do a scheduled post.

If you have any questions, never hesitate to ask!! You can PM me here on LJ or email me (please put vintage ads in the subject). If you are a regular long time member and if phoning is easier for you, contact me and I'll even give you my phone #.

BONUS Weekend Event!!

In addition to the previously announced weekend events starting tomorrow, let's celebrate Dame Patricia Routledge's 90th birthday (February 17th). Who's she? Why Hyacinth Bucket (pronounced Bouquet) from Keeping Up Appearances.

So ads that include hyacinths, daisies, roses, violets, Royal Doulton (with or without the hand painted periwinkles), white slimline phones, anything for a waterside supper with riparian entertainments, etc.

Yes, of course we can acknowledge Dame Patricia's many other theatrical and television achievements.

One Day Event TOMORROW!

14 Thursday ONE DAY EVENTS: Good & Bad Valentine Day Gifts AND Romance Movies

Good & Bad Valentine Day Gifts! (Yes, it might be redundant with Tuesday, but you certainly can post that day's theme ads again if applicable). What's a bad Valentine Day gift? I suppose that's up to you; but would someone appreciate mouthwash? an appliance of some kind? Etc.


Romance Movies, yes, if you think it applies, it can be a contest entry. Just put Contest Entry in the subject line.
