I ran across this old advertisement from Country Life Magazine that is dated July of 1923. I love Vintage Lawn Game Advertisements from days past. They remind us of the many reasons that we love to sell games.
Just like the Abercrombie and Fitch Co. (Did you know that they used to be a Sporting Goods Company?), I agree that we would also like to banish Ennui.
WAIT a minute...WHAT IN THE HECK IS ENNUI
Yeah, well I had to look that one up and I already feel smarter for it! ennui- A feeling of listlessness and dissatisfaction arising from a lack of occupation or excitement. Synonyms; boredom, tedium, listlessness, lethargy, lassitude, languor, weariness.
I have decided that I definitely want to do my part to help banish Ennui, so I am recommending our new Bocce Ball Sets and our new Horseshoe Sets. Bocce Ball Set and Horseshoe Set are perfect summer games. Don't wait, we only sell what we have in stock. We do not back order, so supplies are limited.
Now, step outside and play!
