It’s amazing how much stuff you can come with when you’re trying to pad out a blog entry. This started as an occasional look at package design and logos, and became a weekly excursion into graphics, company history, inventions, trademarks, expired factories, and the like.

Each link goes to a Bleat with five or six entries. It’s a crap shoot. It’s potpourri. I never know what I’m going to find until I research the ads.

If nothing else, you'll learn more about the marriage of Elsie the Borden Cow than you really wanted to know.

Note: Oldest to Newest. The first few dozen go to the Bleat, and the Products! entry is down below the ad. Starting with 2014 it's a direct link down to the entry. Unless it isn't. Gad, keeping this site neat and fixed is a fargin' full time job.
