Vintage Direct Mail

I’m addicted to vintage advertising. I found this piece in a cigar box at the Grayslake Antique Market. The thoughtful design, unique illustration and of course the printed details made me buy the entire lot. It’s all in the details right? Silver shimmery ink for the S. C. Schwartz Co. Must have been some fancy pants.

I’m not sure about the kick in the butt message though.

After a wonderful year off, it’s time to go back to the other work. Honestly, the boss was a bit of a baby. 🙂 And the new Associate Boss (his partner in crime) is an even bigger baby. I needed to pick this guy up at the antique fair in Mundelein. My  fancy pants pencils from World Market were meant to sit cozy in matching dusty value.
