WELCOME TO PAGE #4 OF CHEERWINE ADVERTISING
Here is a small collection of in-store ads that I have collected. I have a few others that I don't have posted yet, but I hope to get them up soon. Below you will see some newer ads that bring us up to date.
This is a special poster from the very begining. I wanted to share this with everyone because Mint Cola is such a rich part of CHEERWINE's history. A few of these posters were found in the old building when they started to renovate it. What a great surprise!! Please take a minute to visit my history page to learn more about Mint Cola and how Cheerwine was born.
There are so many great people out there that help me with my CHEERWINE collecting. One of my biggest supporters is Alice in Salisbury, NC. She is like my Cheerwine Mom in a way and always thinks of me when she gets any new items. I can not thank her enough for her kindness in helping me with my passionate goal to keep CHEERWINE history alive.
Here is another in-store ad that is commonly found framed in antique stores across the state. If any new collectors don't have this one...visit my Trading Post to see if one is currently up for trade from fellow fans.
Here is a neat oldie. It is an original billboard that was found in the old building when they were cleaning it out. The Mint Cola poster above was also in this group of rare finds. It is so funny to me that this billboard was being tossed in a dumpster, however to me it is priceless!! I guess the old saying "One man's trash is another man's treasure" is true.
I know this is just a banner to most people, but to me, it is a great addition to my collection. I collect anything with CHEERWINE on it. I would like to thank Jerod from Pineville, NC for sending me this neat item.
MORE GREAT CHEERWINE ADVERTISING ITEMS!!!
I will soon be adding more great advertising oldies as I find them. And as a CHEERWINE collector, I am always looking to buy classic items. So look down in that basement or call your family members that have stuff stored away, and let them know that there is a nice guy who really cares about this stuff. I look forward to hearing from you and hope you enjoy this look into the history of CHEERWINE advertising. Click the icon below and return to the main page to visit 40 other pages of CHEERWINE past.
I am sure that there are plenty of old ads out there that I don't have here on my little webpage. But I just felt that I had to share what I had found with everyone. I was so tired of seeing hundreds of Coke & Pepsi websites out there that were run by fans & collectors...and NO CHEERWINE pages. So I hope other CHEERWINE fans will be glad I started it, and can find it as a great place to come for CHEERWINE updates, and other related collecting information.
This is a great collage of CHEERWINE history. The ads sure have changed over the years. If anyone has any rare advertising items that they would love to sell, please send me an email and I would forever cherish any CHEERWINE items you may have. I am different than most collectors in that when I buy something, it is not just about the item, but rather the story and history that comes with it. Sometimes, when I am out CHEERWINE hunting, I find myself spending hours just talking to who ever is selling the item. I love hearing the stories of how they got the item or where it came from. I take so much pride in my collecting and it really makes me feel good when older adults want me to have/buy there old CHEERWINE items. They know not only how much it means to me, but that I will forever keep the past alive. Sadly, there are not many youth or adults that enjoy collecting. I have to carry that torch for the older folks that used to run the old general stores, feed mills, etc..Those people have seen a lot in this world and have seen a lot of things change over the years. I feel that we owe it to them to keep their memories alive also. I know many people think I have too much passion, but I cherish the many years that my Dad would spend with me taking me to all of the old general stores throughout N.C. when I was groing up. I guess I just hate to see those days not remembered. So, if I can do my small part of keeping things going in a way that I enjoy (CHEERWINE collecting) then my children will have a piece of history one day to pass on to their kids.
Let's all work together to help keep the good ole days of CHEERWINE alive and well in North Carolina!!
Here is my larger "Red Oval" sign. Their is also a even larger one out there that I hope to find.
This is the silver trimed diamond sign like the one on page #1. I bought this sign from a man in Kannapolis, NC. It was in his old garage with dust on it. It cleaned up great and is in excellent condition.
