While they are certainly not considered “valuable” items, we can’t help but get a kick out of vintage advertisements here in the Special Collections. These little nuggets can be found tucked into the most prominent of collections and lend both cultural context and comic relief.
Above are two images from a Toastmaster ad found in a magazine from the 1960’s that give us just the sort of chuckle needed to kick off a great holiday weekend. So whether you are trying to cook your bird on a ridiculously small rotisserie or are ecstatic over the toaster you will be using to feed your house guests breakfast, we wish you the happiest of Thanksgivings!
See you on Monday!
