Here's a little brochure I picked up a while back.

Just how often has your current vacuum spoken to you?

Judging from the fact that there is no suction unless the wheels are rolling back and forth the average housewife will get quite a workout vacuuming the portieres unless she has three arms. (Or a helper, as shown.)

Here is the Kenney patent referred to.  They were still referencing this patent in 1967.

Vogue Special Design

I just added these to my store.  Coincidentally I have 4 Vogue Special Design sew-in labels left, too!

Daffy Gladys

Gladys loved flowers.  Especially if they were purple.  Gladys also loved to embroider and crochet and had developed real skill with both.  Sadly, Gladys wasn't very good at botany.  Or color coordination.

You can purchase Gladys' lovely runner in my Etsy store.  It is 16" x 41" and has a slight yellowing in the center from being folded up in a drawer for years.  I don't believe it was ever used.

I'm sure there is someone out there who appreciates all of Gladys' hard work!
