Dr. Pepper Plaid

I have these enormous books called All American Ads that are filled with fun, interesting ads from different decades. I have all the books they make — from the 1900s to the 80s. I'm not sure if they'll ever come out with one for the 90s or 2000s, but I hope so. They're fun to see what was popular.

Anyway, the other day I was looking through them and saw this old ad for Sugar Free Dr. Pepper. I guess that was before they started calling things "diet". The plaid bathing suit caught my attention, so I thought I'd share it here. This was from the 1960s book and I remember having suits like this.

Plaid Coffee Mug

I'm always on the lookout for a plaid coffee mug when I scour the thrift store. I finally came across one the other day, but it was golf-themed, so I didn't buy it. Still cool that I finally found one though.
