I'm soooo thrilled!!!!!
Over at CMG, my fav Fiesta hangout, we are having a Secret Santa amongst the members. I received this ORIGINAL Fiesta newspaper advertisement from Fred! It is sooo cool! I've always wanted one of these and figured I would never get one. Hell I couldn't even afford one of the reprint posters that show up on eBay once in awhile! And something even cooler, this paper is from Fred's house! It was actually found when he was tearing out walls during his remodeling! Apparently back in the 40's (this page is dated April 28th 1940) newspaper was rolled up and used for insulation in the walls! Sounds like a major fire hazard to me even before you think of what electrical wiring was like back then! (the only thing I found in my walls when I was remodeling my kitchen was old mouse turds and leaves)
I can't wait to get this framed and hung in my kitchen!
