When I recently rediscovered my large stack of 1950s Fashion Frocks Inc. salesman sample cards, I thought I could part with them. Then I realized that I could share them with the world while avoiding postage costs or damage to my hoard. Cards feature fabric swatches and descriptions of dresses that women sold. First door-to-door and then in Tupperware-like party settings.

Listing is for a PDF version of all 80 plus card fronts and backs (when available) from my personal collection of vintage fashion ephemera which will be offered here. The first 50 cards were individually scanned into a 19MB PDF and the rest split into two smaller PDFs.
