one of the treasures i brought back from north carolina was this pair of overalls my friend danita had given to me a coupla years ago. several people asked me where i got them from and i said, 'oh, they're SEARS!' i have some true beauties from sears of the past....and i've often wondered, what ever happened to sears? archives online, where you can read everything about sears from the sears national baby contest (!) to sears homes and their very own radio station. i wonder if you can visit them...(photograph by michael shin)
i remember lots of catalogues around our house growing up - sears, JC penney...a quick flickr search for 'vintage sears' turned up some nostalgic advertisements and catalogue pages i wanted to share. enjoy!
