Vintage 1968 Happy New Year Paper Napkins

What a find! This really brings back memories of 40 years ago. These vintage paper napkins feature Happy 1968 in colors of white, gold and black on white napkins that measure 9 1/2 inches by 9 3/8 inches. Made by Contempo, there are 16 to the set. They are old stock, new in package, never opened and in excellent condition. See them on eBay auction by clicking the images above! They are brought to you by Vintage Clothesline ( ) and our eBay ID, gooddeal4all.

So, what happened in 1968? Well, Twiggy was hot in the fashion world. Martin Luther King, Jr. was assassinated as was Senator Robert Kennedy, the Civil Rights Act was signed and the Vietnam War continued to rage...the first men orbited the moon, the Olympic Summer Games were held in Mexico City, Andy Warhol was shot, Elvis became a Dad, Jackie Kennedy marries Onassis and Pope Paul VI banned the use of the Pill.

Make that New Year's Party a vintage 60's one and have fun with these napkins! Will also be great a great gift for the collector of paper memorabilia.
