Building off a previous post, this is a collection of old advertising brought together online in a giant soup of random vintage adverts. These help bring us insight into how far advertising has come and how needs of consumers have changed.

Some of these ads, notably the black spray one, seem wrong on every level and I find it strange they were ever excepted. However, others, such as the evil eye or the clairvoyant powder, are slightly lighter in content.

Either way, this site is nothing short of awesome and surprising source of creative inspiration. I urge you to check out and thanks to my friend Dirk for a great tip!
