It's been a little while since I've posted one of these retro advertisements which cause shock, laughter, disbelief and lots of other reactions. So cause I know you love them, I decided to see what I could come up with.
So here's the thing. Since starting to post these vintage ads, I've asked the question - How times have changed or have they? So when I came across this advertisement, I was reminded about something which happened last weekend.
You see, we ran out of coffee last Saturday (or probably a few days before), and we had visitors up, so not a good state of play. I will add here, that I had coffee for the percolator, but none of the instant kind, so as only one person wanted a cup of coffee, they asked for instant. My hubby made a cup in our miniature cafetiere, but apologised for not having any instant as Mrs 120 Socks had neglected to buy any!
It is rather amazing that said husband survived this comment, but even more amazing that I let it slide, and then completely forgot about it. Until that is, I seen this 1950's advertisement below. So even though hubby didn't put me over his knee or anything nearly as daring, he will gets words when he gets home!
