Vintage Binder Articles
I was at a thrift store and stumbled upon this awesome vintage binder; I love the design on the cover. I like the colors, the geometric shapes, the fonts—everything is just so retro. I bought it for $2.
It’s a huge binder and filled with selected magazine articles; it’s someone’s collection of things they thought worth keeping over the years. There are some recipes, but it’s mostly craft articles: crochet, sewing and DIY gifts. It’s rather interesting to see the range of articles that are mostly from the 1960s and 1970s.
Here are some of the articles that caught my eye. I thought these play boxes were interesting.
I like these crochet white pillows. They have lovely elaborate patterns, but are still very simple being white on white.
These pillow dolls are amusing.
And I liked this article of how to stretch your fashion dollars by buying quality clothes you can mend and alter.
Finally, the cover of Woman’s Day that shows hairstyles from 1966.
