Strange Vintage Ads

I LOVE vintage photos and ads, especially the creepy and strange ones. On a recent trip to Montreal's only indoor Flea Market (bought a bunch of awesome props for the play!), I found many vintage photos and saw a few.. terrifying.. ads. This inspired a long internet search for the creepiest and strangest vintage ads. I thought I'd do a late Friday the 13th post and share these ads with you! Let me know what you think ;)

This ad was shown in one of my textiles classes when we were speaking of Du Pont.. It sort of traumatized me. Oh the 50s, when plastic bags weren't known to be dangerous.


  1. Those are hilarious/creepy/fab! Some are definitely what the heck..shaving babies, cellophane wrapped babies, smoke in the face, bloody meat and white gloves hat and pearls..LOL. Very cool!

  2. Oh wow, these are so creepy, especially all the kids' expressions. Thanks for a nice chuckle!

  3. Glad you guys seemed to enjoy these as much as I have ;)
