Companies have been advertising on hand fans for a long time.
Even today, some companies continue the practice of giving fans out to their customers.
In fact, at the Antique Expo show this weekend, they had hand fans for people to use as they walked around outside looking at the antiques. Their fan had a sweet Gibson style girl printed on it.
Pretty girls, flowers or other pleasing images are the most common to find on the fans.
Take for instance the fan pictured above. It has a beautiful girl with lovely roses printed on it.
The starting bid for this fan is $5- and there are 6 days left on it's sale.
