New York: Girl Scouts of America, 1969. Quarto, publisher's stapled photo-illustrated wraps.
April 1969 issue of Girl Scouts of America’s American Girl magazine. Published from 1917 to 1979, the magazine was originally called The Rally and then The American Girl before later dropping the "The" (although it has no association with the American Girl brand’s own publication). Each issue is wholesomely illustrated in color and black-and-white with official Girl Scouts coverage, fictional stories, jokes, advice columns, recipes (a sugar cookie recipe featured in a 1922 issue is what launched the cookie selling revolution), fashion news and editorials, makeup and beauty tips, and numerous vintage ads in 60s style. This issue’s focus is on finances for teens, and includes a feature on "turning hot ideas into cold cash," a fashion editorial including garments for "prices your budget will love," and a guide to "mini money dates." Mailing label to upper wrap. Some general edgewear and creasing. Very good. Item #2991
