Efrem Zimbalist, Jr. School Tablet

Oh, wow!  Do you remember school tablets featuring movie and television stars on the front cover?  This 7 1/2" by 9  3/4" tablet is unused.   The price of 10 is printed on the blue top spine.  The back is the traditional gray cardboard.  The paper is lined and the overall condition is near mint.  I believe these were made in the 1960's.

$24.95

Your Highway ABC Book
from ESSO

This is an adorable vintage advertising premium from ESSO.  The ABC rhymes are way more sophisticated than "A is for Apple, B is for Ball....".  The first one says:

A is for Apples - Asparagus, too -
Transported quickly and cheaply to you.
These are but two of the thousands of things
Your good friend, the Truck so conveniently brings.

The book is in good condition and the illustrations are sure to delight you.  

The inside front cover reads:  Copyright, 1935 Jay H. Williams and National Highway Users Conference, Washington, D. C.

Jell-O Ad 

This adorable Jell-O magazine ad is from the September 24, 1955 issue of The Saturday Evening Post. Would be a nostalgic addition to your 1950's kitchen or a child's room. Even the poem is charming.

There was an old woman who lived in a shoe
Who had so many children, she knew what to do!
She lined them all up for a penny-wise feast---
A huge bowl of Jell-O, and one spoon apiece.

The ad is in a plastic bag with a cardboard backing. This did create a glare on the picture.
