It's been a while since I've featured any Albertsons memorabilia on the blog, so today seemed like a good time to make up for that. Not too long ago, I came across this late 90's Albertsons bag at an estate sale. This bag advertises the newly redesigned Albertsons brand products, which were introduced in this design around 1999. While this bag is pretty neat, it's actually in awful shape. When I first found this bag, it contained some spare paintbrushes and was wrapped up inside of an old Wal-Mart bag. In the process of me trying to dump the paintbrushes out of the tangled bags, the Albertsons bag (which was semi dry-rotted) began to tear in a few places across the middle. If you look closely at the above photo, you can see some of the tears. By the time I freed the Albertsons bag, it was ripped and only about 85% complete (the handles and part of the back are missing). In the end though, I still got a complete front side (where the main picture was), which is the part that matters!
Here's a closeup of the picture on the front of the bag. For a more detailed example of some of this style packaging, I featured some of it on the blog in the past.
If you follow me on flickr, you know there's plenty more to be found in the AFB bag collection (including many more bags that have not been featured online yet - including some more from Albertsons). Clicking on the prior link you can take a look through some of the other bags I've featured on flickr in the past (including one of my all time favorite bags in the collection - my Florida Choice bag).
So that little bit of memorabilia was all I had for now. Until the next post,
