As promised about a million years ago, here's my selection of K-Mart ads from some Dolly's.  I've been a bit busy with study/work, but I will try and post some more images asap.  I love a bit of low-brow images from my favourite decade, and K-Mart ads certainly fit the bill.  I love the 1986 ad, it's a bit more colourful and carefree compared with the '88 ads, although the 'teen idol' ad is a bit arty for K-Mart I think with its soft focus/black and white look.

  2. Oh yes...black & white striped leggings were a must! Any idea who won Dolly Cover Girl comp in 1987 & 1988? Found your blog in my search for this info.

  3. Hmmm had a scour through my collection, and I'm not sure about '87, but the face of '88 was Kate Fischer who became notorious for being engaged to James Packer I believe..

    And to Miss Prudence, I just *knew* you'd appreciate this one!!

  4. Have you got any with Jason Donovan in them?
    My friend from school went out with Jason for a while when he was modelling for Kmart or Target....circa 1984 I think? Pre neighbours!

    1. Hmmm I'll have to have a look - I absolutely adored Jason Donovan when I was a little kid...so I'll have to do a dig around.
