Recently while hanging out with friends in the Philadelphia area, I noticed in their kitchen framed vintage advertising campaigns from the early 1900’s. I thought about how such a cool idea this is to reuse something old that you can possibly find in an antique store.
My friend mentioned that a friend of the family used to work for an advertising agency and gave them the old ads. She simply framed them and used them as a kitchen decor piece. Cool idea!
Vintage advertisements make decorative conversation pieces in any area of the home. However, I find them most interesting to decorate in the kitchen. I have found a few myself that I have decorated in my kitchen showing old minstrel like charachures of African Americans at the turn of the previous century. While I do not find them offensive, I found them interesting conversation pieces for visitors who come for a dinner party I am hosting. The accents they provide and the colors are unmistakable.
Consider creating a vintage decor for your kitchen. This is an interesting environmentally-friendly accessory you can find any vintage or antique shop.
