Vintage Brochures from Old Tourist Attractions



A few years ago, I read a wonderful book called DIXIE BEFORE DISNEY by Tim Hollis. It is about old fashioned tourist attractions in the southern United States. Lots of great memories in that book! So when I found a shoebox full of old travel brochures, I bought them all. They have done really well on eBay, selling from $5.00 to $46.00. The star was a front and back brochure from Florida's Rainforest in Wildwood, Florida. But I've also had Weeki Wachee, Silver Springs (Ocala, Florida), Potter's Wax Museum (St. Augustine, Florida), and more. So don't pass up those vintage travel brochures! Besides -- they're fun to read and travel back in time.

Here are some great vintage travel brochures, if you'd like to take a look:

hey, I'm looking for some old brochures on the Mullet Bay Resort in St. Maarten; a friend did modeling for them before the hurricane destroyed the property in 1995 and I would love to surprise him with some of those brochures. If anyone has any suggestions on where to look, please post!

Wish I could help you! I would suggest making a saved search on eBay so eBay will send you an email when brochures become available. To do this:

(1) search with the following terms:
brochure* mullet bay maarten

(2) click on "save this search" top right corner of search screen.

Hope this helps you find the brochures you want!
