A few summers ago, I found several vintage American Girl and other teen magazines at an antique shop out of town. I always find wonderful fashion and beauty ideas and I love reading the funny ads and articles in these. They were such a good deal, I picked up a stack of them for my collection. Here's a peek inside American Girl magazine from November 1948. 

American Girl was the Girl Scout magazine of its day and it always has some wonderful ads for vintage Girl Scout branded clothes and accessories. I especially love the dancing instructions in this one, although I can't make heads or tails of it!
