Poking around in old issues of the Colorado Springs Gazette Telegraph from this time of year in the 1960s we found page after page of Valentine’s Day ads for Hibbard’s, May D&F, Fashion Bar and many others that tugged at our heart strings for that imaginary black and white past where things were “simpler” (yeah right).

Here’s a little stroll down nostalgia lane through the lens of local ads for l’amour’s biggest shopping day of the year some 50 years ago. Enjoy!
