Welcome to Oakie's Treehouse!
Everyone is familiar with popular national advertising mascots such as the Jolly Green Giant or Charlie the Tuna, who have been around for decades and will likely continue for years to come. But what about local advertising mascots - especially those that were only around for a little while but are still a part of our collective consciousness and memories?
This website is dedicated to vintage advertising mascots from the Lorain County, Ohio area that served their companies but are no longer in usage. The website is named after Oakie the Squirrel, who was the mascot for Oakwood Shopping Center in Lorain. So climb up into Oakie's Treehouse and visit with Oakie and some other great local advertising mascots from the 1950s, 60s and 70s.
