resplendence asked: Hi, I really love your blog! Your collection of vintage ads is amazing and a huge inspiration.
I was wondering if I could have permission to use one of the images you posted for a design project? It's to advertise for a vendor fair/farmers' market-type event at my school, and I'd love to incorporate these awesome styles.
Thank you for the amazing work you do! :D
Thanks - I’m glad they inspire. Of course you can use them in your project I’m happy to help and thanks for asking first.

mermaidsexmurderingdolly asked: i take it the title of your blog and the whole basic idea of it (your posts) is inspired or at least somewhat influenced by the television show mad men?! :D
I archive vintage fashion photography and advertisements for http://myvintagevogue.com I buy magazines from the 1930’s – 1960’s and as a result end up with ads that are not fashion so I decided to create a blog just for them. Long before Mad Men the advertising world was referred to as Madison Avenue due to the fact that so many ad agencies were in New York on Madison Avenue it seemed like an appropriate name. I am a fan of Mad Men but this blog isn’t inspired by it.
