ye olde Christmas Card List



these little
 Christmas Card Shopping Lists
 were once a useful 'give away'
 advertising tool. 
this adorable example is from SWEIGART'S, in PA.  I only found the cover but 
how CUTE!  Made for the 1939 Christmas season 

~this image is also found on the 1940 Calendar of Memory
 -another store advertising giveaway.
 (SEE CALENDAR HERE)

published by RUST CRAFT CARDS ...
 stores names were printed on the cover.
here the backside shows a typical layout~just
Check the cards you need and bring it shopping with you
 so you're sure to remember all your special loved ones!

the greeting card industry has never been shy about 
teaching the public how to properly use
their products!

"You'll find this list a time-saver and a help in determining your Christmas Card requirements"

This Christmas Card list was also put out
 
by RUST CRAFT,
probably 1950s
given out by the Circle Gift Shop Rochester NY
"It's Never Too Early To Help You....
Select Your RUST CRAFT Christmas Cards"
sections for
 "IMMEDIATE FAMILY and RELATIVES"
"SPECIAL FRIENDS and DEAR ONES"
"CHILDREN to SEND and RECEIVE"
"SPECIFIC TITLES for SPECIAL PURPOSES"
.....
for example

and 
"SPECIAL CARDS to DECORATE the TABLE OR MANTLE"

"Haven't you often been delighted at the
 holiday season to receive a
Rust Craft Christmas Card
that you know has been
specially selected for you~~
and when that card includes a
short personally written note,
it is doubly appreciated!
It is also true,
that specially chosen Rust Craft cards
 received from you will carry that same
 friendly feeling that mean so much
 more than the usual Christmas greeting.
Remember~ it's these little extra
friendly and kindly thoughts at
this season that mean so much"
this colorful little booklet
 was given by Olney Savings and Loan PA~
not only for your Christmas card list but also
a handy shopping list!

used for Christmas Club marketing
the first part of the booklet
 is for a shopping list
 ...including the name, gift and cost!
 Number One On Your List!
 Let Our Christmas Club Help You Save

and the Christmas Card list section
 to record names and addresses
Are you sending traditional through the mail cards?
