Wonderful 1920s fashion adverts.

I've always felt just a tinge of guilt when I have used original vintage newspapers to decoupage my mannequins with.  I remind myself that they are probably going to last and be seen longer on a mannequin (with several coats of a good lacquer) than they would left to rot in a drawer.  My dilemma is when there are two stunning advertisments on both sides of the paper!  thankfully technology (don't you just adore it) has come to my rescue.  I can and have been scanning and storing them.  I can't use them to decoupage as the ink would run and I only sell original vintage paper mannequins but I can look back at them and, of course, share them with you.  So here are just a few...   

...aren't they fabulous!  I love the "Boudoir or Smoking Suit" the most. 
How times have changed!
Hope your day is a good one. Lucyxx

What great adverts! I wouldn't feel guilty about using them on your mannequins, like you say they will probably last longer and will be appreciated much more too! xx

Where would these ads have been found in the 1920s? In newspapers and things?
