I find many things appropriate to share on this blog that you may not consider part of your beauty repertoire. Other than just your basic hair and makeup products, there are many other items to consider in your never ending quest to be a vintage beauty.
Case in point…the Vintage or Antique Advertising Fan.
Advertising fans started their popularity in the very early 20th century when mass printing and cheap production made them a great way for businesses to advertise. These fan companies had the artwork and production process set and would just need to offer typesetting and printing to the businesses. It is very common to see religious imagery or advertisements for funeral homes on them since they were often handed out at churches with no air-conditioning.
You can find these great antique fans all over Ebay and Etsy. Or head over to your local antique mall. I have found some great fans there.
