I recall as a child in early 70s (1st and 2nd grade) my mother and grandmother (her mother) would get the huge, giant Sears catalog. I would go through each page enjoying reading it. Until the 1980s they still got them every year. I assume they got the catalogs many years before my birth. I l still read them in high school (more glancing). We bought a lot from the stores, fridges, TVs, clothes all as a child. Haven't bought much from them in years.
Anyone recall the Sears Catalog? Greatest Catalogs evah. Makes GOT novels seem tiny.
