Old McCall's Shipping Envelope and Special Offers Advertisement

More finds from in between my vintage fabric haul from a Kansas farm auction, this is an old McCall's shipping envelope.  From The McCall Company. . .Fashion Publishers. . . it probably contained fancy work patterns since the return address indicates it came from the Fancy Work Department.


Inside of the envelope was a nearly-perfect advertisement that with McCall's subscriptions, certain offers were attached in which a person could choose an umbrella, teaspoons, jewelry and more:



Unfortunately I couldn't find dates on anything.  The postal stamps on the envelope were smudged and the advertisements didn't yield anything, either.  With the looks of the items offered, I would guess this was between 1900-1910.
