Vintage Ads Add Pizazz to the Workplace

Real Estate Agent with Century 21 Beal, Inc College Station, Texas

I love eBay.

Don't ask me how I found it but I bought a broadside advertising Beautiful Homesites

in Florida.  The ad states, " $10 starts purchase of 1/4 acre 10,000 sq. feet  at sunny

FLORIDA SHORES in Daytona Beach Area.  I bought it, had it framed and have it hung in my

office.  My clients love to read it and they usually remark, "Wow, wish I had gotten in on that."

I just smile and tell them that today is tomorrow.  They usually agree.

I also think vintage ads make great closing gifts.  If you sell a house to a tire store owner, find a

Firestone ad, etc.

Check out eBay you would be surprised at the vintage ads available.

Brenda, what a great idea, I am going to check those out. I usually give a framed photo that I took of something local, but I am always on the lookout for new ideas!

That is beautiful. Makes you think about things in a different perspective, eh? :-)

What a great idea Brenda. I love vintage too, but never thought of this as a gift. This would be so unique for a closing gift. Thanks again!
