Gypsy Creams

Welcome to Gypsy Creams!

Being a keen student of social history, I jumped at the chance to pick up a large box of women’s magazines from the 1960s, and this site is the result. The magazines have much that is amusing and interesting, but I especially want to focus on the advertising, and to reflect on what has changed, what hasn’t, and to highlight the odd advert that really highlights a change happening in society at that time. Comments are very welcome, and if you have any contributions of your own, I’d love to hear from you. Enjoy!

Great subject for a blog!

Noobish question here, why “Gypsy Creams”?

There was an iconic biscuit from the time called ‘Gypsy Creams’. I’m not sure if you can still get them, but I was inspired by a CD I own:

I have never heard of them but they sound delicous.
