Now with a “fit-feature” designed to prevent crotch droop, Gaymode Fit-Lok Top has no Sag – No Bag – No Bind!

With Extra Big (mostly blond) hair and thicker black Mascara every time! Check out that Flexxtra nylon! Another Gaymode fashion first!

(Yes, it was really called Gaymode. I really can’t write stuff that over the top, myself.)

What are you waiting for? See more vintage hosiery packaging!!

7-Up packaging, 1976

Urban Ore (the ultimate in complete recycling and thrift, located in Berkeley, CA) had these fab vintage 7-Up cans.

7-Up produced this ad campaign in 1976, with 50 cans, one for each state. If you stacked them in order alphabetically, they showed an image of Uncle Sam on the reverse. More info on these cans…
