Coca Cola advertising!

PAUSE for Living was a quarterly publication distributed by The Coca Cola Company and offered the reader ideas for “gracious living." The publication's title utilized the company's popular "Pause" slogan. Booklets were targeted to women through women's clubs, garden clubs, beauty salons and similar groups and intended to let women know that Coca-Cola was the perfect drink to offer when entertaining friends and family.

Each 24-page softcover issue is filled seasonal decorating and entertaining ideas with colorful photographs and vintage illustrations. Many features continue through the multiple booklets as a series, like "how to decorate with collectibles" and "easy-to-do flowering decorating."

Booklets measure 8" high by 5 ½” wide and are in good vintage condition with the cattle stitched covers attached. Some booklets do have staining on the back covers. 

The final issue of PAUSE for Living was published in Winter 1969 and included an insert with farewell letter from Coca Cola signed by James Williams, a Vice President at the time.

Great gift idea for your vintage decorating, advertising or Coca Cola collector or imagine several framed together to decorate the walls in your retro kitchen or living area!
