Arabelle Jell-well and 100th post giveaway

Sunday, May 3, 2009



I was sorting through some ephemera today and ran across this little leaflet/foldover promotional for Jell-well. They made packaged gelatins and puddings mid-century. I don't know anything about the company really. Since Jell-O was created in 1845 and named in 1897, Jell-well wasn't a predecessor of it obviously. The copyright date on the little paper doll is 1955.



And since this is my 100th post, if you'll leave a comment I'll put your name in a hat for an envelope of ephemera (including sweet little Arabelle!) and other goodies. I'll take sign ups until Wednesday 6pm central time. International welcome.

ETA: Wednesday evening - Comments are closed. Will post the winner in the morning. Thanks everybody! :)
