Ephemera Collection:

Chevrolet Perfume and Cologne Samples

These perfume and cologne samples used to be given out by Chevrolet car dealers.  There are not a lot that have survived the test of time, which is why I decided to collect them.  You may notice that some are from the same place---Harry H. Diehl Motor Sales.  Luckily, Harry's wife had the foresight to save the unused promotional items and maintained them in nearly mint condition.  Most samples were not so lucky.
