Christmas 60′s style
I don’t buy magazines all that much anymore; but when I find vintage home magazines I have to pounce!
Heres a wonderful look back into Christmas 1964 from Ideal Home magazine and their gift selection for Home Lovers .
I’d love to say “Wow haven’t things changed!” but actually……any of there’s products could sit quite happily in any store now. I don’t think even Ebay could compete on price though! If you can understand the money of way back then; I’m afraid I just don’t really get the old £s shillings and pence thing! But I think its all very cheap compared to today. I probably paid more for the magazine than for most of the products on the following pages!
