Last Summer, my mother and I went yard-selling and came across a house that had stack after stack of old magazines from local salons – most of them were from the 1960’s-1990’s! Of course, I went to the oldest section and found the ones that were in the best condition. I ended up buying a folder full of them, all in wonderful shape and beautiful colors, for less than $5! I had planned on going back to get more from the 70’s, as I hadn’t brought much money (I normally don’t buy much from yardsales.) but by the time we could’ve gone back, most of it was completely gone. Not a huge shock, of course. (: Most of them had tutorials on how to do the styles at home, some of them have lovely illustrations and there were a few large posters as well. I hung one of the posters on my bedroom wall, as well as three of the nicest art pieces. I love looking at the old illustrations and art from the salons. (:
Of course, my first thought was to post them on the blog for all of my fellow vintage lovers to look at and discuss, but I kept putting it off and putting it off! I had more important posts planned, a switch to WordPress and a lot of redesigning to do (as most of you all will notice at first glance. I’ve changed the header and background, as well as updated a few pages.) and the poor magazines and art got pushed back until now! But I decided to go ahead and take photos this morning while babysitting my little brother and niece, and post them for y’all! I hope you enjoy seeing the first batch!
