  1. They got a jump on what most retailers do today. Getting their brand on a product made by someone else. But back in the day your really could get almost anything from their catalog. Kinda like Amazon today. The first house Mary Beth and I lived in had been built from a Sears and Roebuck kit.

    1. I remember the old catalogs, fascinating. Once when in Tupelo MS I visited the Sears house Elvis was born in. Now the description…

      You enter the small building (not yet the house) through a chapel playing Elvis hymns. Next the house (one room), finally you must exit through the gift shop. I bought Ellen an Elvis mouse pad LOL. Strange business trip.
