Banking on Nostalgia Again

Oct 1, 2009

WILD BILL'S POSTERS has added a line of buttons based on what the company's owner, Bill Ziegler, calls, "remakes of the 1960s," which have come back to popularity. These join Wild Bill's extensive lines of period posters, celebrating classic concerts and historic events. "Nostalgia is recession proof," Ziegler says.
