1950s Ad Art

A postcard I made for a swap with the theme of 1950s advertising. These are all authentic '50s images (except the butterfly). The quote is from the 1953 movie "Roman Holiday" starring Audrey Hepburn. Can you believe these outfits -- two and three pieces each! -- cost less than a sawbuck?

Love that postcard. That's my era. Couldn't beat the fashion or the craftsmanship. And, I remember "Roman Holiday". One of the good oldies.

Thanks Renee! I appreciate you checking it out. I'm a big fan of those old Sears ads.
