I just saw this Hoover model 69 on eBay. Clearly the bag is a replacement. But if you look inside it's the print from the bicentennial edition! Did Hoover have extra vinyl to make replacement bags? Has anyone else seen this before?

Hoover wasted nothing. They'd make the "universal, generic" white replacement vinyl bags from the bicentennial vinyl goods leftover from that run. I have about 3 or 4 of these bags. Imagine the surprise to see it on the "inside".

Wow, I had no idea. Wonder if they made replacement bags using other prints on the inside? Seems a shame more than a quarter of a century later, as those bicentennial Hoovers are getting rarer all the time....

It was very practical at the time.

@gottahaveahoover is there any chance that I could buy a bicentennial bag from you?
The bicentennial Hoover was my childhood vacuum.

Hi Damien,Thanks for contacting me.

I used to have 2 Bicentennial vacuums, now, I only have one. It has the original bag. I have a few 'replacement bags', in use on machines. The artwork, of course, is on the inside of the bag. You aren't able to 'reverse' them, as, they were heat sealed to create the shape of the bag.I'm sorry I am unable to help out.
