LUX Soap Ad - 1933

This ad is so fun! I love how we are told that the girls washed their stocking with the Lux soap-and rubbed with the cake soap! I wonder if that might have had something to do with the outcome:) I also love that there is the idea here that you take care of things to make them last. Wonderful ad, Crystal!

I'm Shannon from the blog Below the Plateau (, and I am stopping by all my followers' blogs (you! =D) to give them a quick update! =) I am no longer blogging at Below the Plateau; however, I have started a new blog that I would *LOVE* for you to come check out and follow! It's called "The Many Adventures of the Homemaking Intern", and it's about - you guessed it - my journey towards learning the art of homemaking, fun stuff that happens along the way, and everything in between - pretty much just life in general! =)
Hope to see you there!

Ads in the past were very witty. It all falls down to the writer, and that's tough. But for me they lack execution. I've never seen abstract ads in all my years of collating classic ads.
