Vintage Toronto Ads: Christmas Shop Until You Drop

A holiday assortment of Christmas shopping ads.


As this Vintage Toronto Ads entry is being posted, last-minute Christmas shoppers are scurrying across the GTA. Odds are good that if you’re reading this before the big boxes and malls have shut their doors, you’ve finished fulfilling wish lists and are marking time before the traditional exchanging of gifts and testing of your stomach’s capacity.

If you’re procrastinating until zero hour to hit the stores, or if you enjoy the adrenaline rush that comes from a last-second blitz, perhaps our gallery of vintage holiday shopping ads will provide a final burst of inspiration. Or, if you think Christmas is an over-commercialized orgy of capitalism, enjoy the period ad design.

Click through the image gallery to read more about each ad.
