IT was the spine of this book I spotted first. The gold lettering jumped at me from the Salvos’ book shelf. I pulled it off the shelf and clutched it to my chest before ducking behind a rack of clothing to take a sneek peek. Oooh. An intake of breath. A quick look at the ticket price of $2.50 and without looking at anything else in the store I made a dash for the counter and shelled out a few coins. Isn’t it lovely? There are long coats, short coats, dresses, wide-legged pants, skirts and shirts and pattern making guides for them all. OK. I admit it. I did spy the length of green fabric too. Doesn't it look like something from the latest edition of Selvedge. The background is Sunday afternoon’s ironing and the last of the weekend’s washing.

  3. Great find - love the font! Thanks for your question on vintage marketing about why don't they use the same type of displays and packaging as way back when. My Mom had good insight - she said mostly everything is shipped from overseas and needs to be in tough packaging to survive the trip - thus plastic and other material packaging. Back then everything was local and Made in the USA, so no need for frivolous packaging. Would be nice if we re-considered it right?
