Footprint Rugs

A fad in the early 1970s. I can't find them available for sale anywhere now, however.

Looks t'me like that's only available in a left-footprint. If you can't get both, no deal.

@mindful -- they're only available as a joined pair these days:

I'm wondering how big that top one is if it can be mailed anywhere in the US for seventy-five cents.

8 cent postage stamps (1971-8)and parcel post similarly cheap.
And good old Aztec Gold as a color choice. No Avocado though.

Oh yeah, the size 20" X 43" a bath mat. Bigfoot has bigger feet.

Leave the Jolly Green Giant one exposed to the sun for a while and you'll get your avocado color.

An aunt of mine had something like that way back in the 1960's. I should have asked where she bought it.

I still have a beach towel from the 1960s that has a large green footprint and the words "Ho Ho Ho" on it. It was a promotional item for Green Giant. It is well used, so I don't know if there is any Ebay value to it. My wife still has not turned it into cleaning cloths yet, despite her disdain of it.
