I've scanned from Alt for Damerne (All for the Ladies), number 41 from 1955 for you. It is a Danish magazine, but I hope my foreign readers might get some inspiration from the photos. Remember all photos can be enlarged by clicking at them.

I think the former owner has cut out a coupon for the lovely dress pattern - I wish it was me!
An add for rice in which there even is a recipe:
And of course one collects silver cutlery from Georg Jensen. In fact, I have a fork and a spoon in this pattern, which I got as a Christening present.
The ads back then were often a nice little cartoon, like here:
I think they are very charming.
Or they could be real art, like here:
I love the zipper ad.
And the laundry could not be too white:
And she dares going to the chicken yard, but that's because she has Rinso.
You can often find a nice little column of mini ads at the end of the magazine, I suppose they were cheaper to buy:
Back then you could choose between seven different Rena puddings:
