As I have been sorting out the collection a bit over the last couple of months, selling bits and pieces, I’ve found a few of my beloved product catalogs ranging from the early ’80s up until the mid-’90s. From a time long before the World Wide Web, when mail order and brick and mortar stores ruled, these catalogs were what dreams were made of.
Browsing through these as a kid surely made a nice wish list for Santa.
Below, a few photos from some of the catalogs.
