Quick - Did you spot the Frigidaire Flair double oven on the Season 5 Mad Men premier?

Well, as the title says, there's a Flair there!

  1. It's my very own Custom Imperial (replace Pete's almond doors with my avocado).! I wondered if anyone else seized up at that shot. Thanks for posting.:)

    1. I happened to be watching the show on my iPhone so doing a screen grab was easy.

  2. Yummy! I haven't been able to watch the newest episode yet but I'm hoping that's Pete and Trudy's new kitchen?

  3. Yes, I did, among many other things- mod lamps, typewriters, Don & Megan's living room and everything in it, and of course, "Zou bisou bisou!"

  6. Cool! I recently picked up 20 issues of The Saturday Evening Post from the 1950s, I'm having a blast looking at all the ads. Tons of appliance and flooring ads. Have you ever seen a wall mounted refrigerator? New to me! I gotta start checking out Mad Men, haven't seen it. I have an issue of Life from 1961 with an extensive article on the advertisement industry. It's been tucked away and my husband found it the other day while cleaning/organizing. I only stumbled across this ACM Mad Men show when looking for vintage dishware (people referring to "Mad Men", so it was a neat coincidence. Like your blog!

    2. Yes! The one in the ad is turquoise. I'm thinking about scanning a bunch of these old ads and sticking/sharing them on my blog. Gosh, wish I had the (60s) pink fridge, washer and dryer we had growing up! (Oh and, your house numbers sign is sooooo neat!) Evie

  7. My website gets a decent amount of traffic from some of my frigidaire flair posts. If it is ok with you I would like to use your screen shot in a post, and would credit you of course. Thanks in advance! Long live the Frigidaire Flair!

  9. This was the same model of Frigidaire Flair Custom Imperial used on the 3rd-6th season of Bewitched in the pale yellow colour (Season 1 and Season 2 each had earlier models). General Motors (Frigidaire's corporate owner) was a sponsor of Bewitched for Season 1 - 4 and each year placed current-year models of the appliances (Fridge/dishwashers, etc), in addition to the Chevrolets. Likely because the sponsorhip deal ended, the Flair had a piece of white tape over the name Frigidaire in Seasons 5 & 6 until it was replaced when the set was rebuilt.
