Many More Stay The Same
I just love...love...love button cards. I have oodles! This particular card has a lovely "Glamour Girl" and some really un-glamorous buttons. But, as fabulous advertisers and marketers all agree sometimes it is not the "widget" we are buying...it is the packaging around the "widget". I'm guessing this card was available in the 50's (judging by the style of the lady). The "packaging people and marketeers" of that era were incredibly insightful about teasing us with the hope of looking glamorous by simply wearing these somewhat 'plain Jane' buttons. My how some things change....and so many more stay the same.
