30 Gorgeous Vintage Packages Which Will Make You Want To Travel In Time And Buy Them

Most of today’s product come in plain and tasteless packages due to the fact that the producers are more interested on how to cut costs rather on how to make something beautiful, and they often use cheap materials such as plastic. Back in the good old days, the marketing was at its beginning so they focused not only on the product itself but also on how it was packed or placed. They used more details, more colors….I don’t know but I think that all the vintage products or packages are more vibrant than the ones from today.
