Christmas Favorite

Here is my all-time favorite vintage Christmas card.  There’s just something fresh about this young woman, all dressed and ready for that special Christmas party.  Of course, today, you might used the current favorite catch phrase of the ebay and etsy seller to describe this one:  Mad Men.

And for once, you’d be correct, because this is vintage early 1960s, and very sophisticated in the Mad Men manner.

So which of the women of Mad Men would send such a card?  It looks the type of card a single girl would send, but I just can’t picture Joan or Peggy sending this card.  No, this is an Allison card – sent before the office party.

Apologies to those of you who do not watch Mad Men.
