For Vintage Buffs....Sears, 1939!!





These are pages from a Fall 1939 Sears catalog. Be sure to click on the photos for a close up view. Check out the prices!!
Just wanted to share them with you! Hope they make you smile as much as I did when browsing through this antique catalog. My mother gave this catalog to me when I was doing research for a book set during this time period.

The fabric behind the catalog is one of my favorite antique fabrics...it is from about the same year.

Enjoy!

That's a gorgeous catalog! Look at the fabrics and the APRONS! Good thing that one didn't end up in the outhouse~lol

I sat down and thumbed through this whole catalog tonight...it is amazing. China hutches went for 16.75....those same cupboards in the antique stores are $500 and $600! I am so glad that I have this catalog...such wonderful history in it!
