Subscription gifts

subscription gifts, originally uploaded by drewzel.

All my old needlework magazines have lots of ads for gifts that you can get in return for selling subscriptions. Its difficult for me to comprehend if the gifts were good value for the work of talking others into magazine subscriptions, and if the items were expensive luxury items for the era. This page from Needlework magazine of the 30's caught my eye because it was in colour, and particularly charming.
