June 16, 20111959 Fall and Winter Sears Catalog Part 1
By Sara In AZ
So, I went to this Estate Sale and it was like the last hour, of the last day, of the sale. I didn’t have much hope there would be anything that great left. I scrounged around for a bit a spotted this beat up old Sears catalog laying on the bottom shelf of one of the sales racks. When I say beat up, I really do mean beat up. This catalog is missing it’s first 480 pages, then another section is ripped out from page 880 to 920. It is in pretty fragile condition, therefore I had to actually take pictures of the pages and not scan them. I really love these old catalogs; it is so cool to see all the interesting things that were available to buy back then. For $1 I could not pass this catalog up!

These girls petticoats are so darling, it makes me want to snap them all up in adult sizes!
So sweet, just look at all these adorable baby clothes!
I love all the Roy Rogers western gear that is for sale. And check it out, they have a Dale Evans set for all you cowgirls too!
Did young boys ever really dress this nice? Can you imagine if they did today?
Well hello Don Draper! Hubba-hubba! I think all these chaps are going to show up on Mad Men next season. And can you believe the prices – $52.50 for the MOST expensive suit! WOW!!!
Ummmmmm, I’m really not sure about that vest on the top left.
What do y’all think?
OMG!!! A chenille ballerina bedspread and a chenille western bedspread. Life simply does not get any better!
Wowee-zowee!!! Cool clocks galore! And just check out those prices – $15 for that big Starburst clock. I’ll take it!
Whoa, I am completely in love with ALL of the pole lights and lamps. Check it out, there is even some lights from Lightolier on the bottom left.
Just get a load of all these retro kitchen accessories! LOVE!!!
WAIT. A. MINUTE. Stop everything, I need a moment here. Is that ‘Frosty’ and ‘Pink’ I see together there as an option on the counter tops? Sears, sign me up for one of those counter tops please!!! And I need that pink sink too, PLEASE!!!!!
I just love these TVs. I think I’ll go with the Suburbanite Home Entertainment Center in blonde.
I didn’t know Sears sold Motorcycles too! Wow Sears, you totally rock!
Stay tuned for Part 2 from the Sears catalog – next Thursday.
