IT CAME FROM THE 1971 SEARS CATALOG
I may have run this site before, can't remember, but either way it is worth another viewing! Enter at your own risk and view some of the horrid fashions that Sears advertised back in the 70s era.

Sears Catalog 1971
This was the crown jewel of my recent wanderings. I actually can not remember when I laughed so hard at a single website. As the title describes, these are actual scans of a Sears catalog from 1971. Although the pictures are priceless, the commentary that goes with them is what will drop you. At the same time however, those of you who actually were alive during the early 70’s will wonder how you ever survived this acid driven fashion nightmare. This is going on my Top 10 Websites of All Time.

There's nothing quite like cranking up the Wayback machine every now and then — for the sake of nostalgia. Maybe too, to better understand why as a society we stopped doing certain things. It came from the 1971 Sears Catalog! is a look back at a fashion catalog published by the retailer Sears (http://www.sears.com/ ) at the height of the synthetic fabrics craze. Commentary from Linda Causey adds to the entertainment.
LOOK AT THE CRAP YOUR PARENTS USED TO BUY AT SEARS
This guy found a 1971 Sears Catalog somewhere and scanned it, categorized it, linkalized and organized it, and now we can all see the junk in it.

The author of this site found this Fall 1971 Sears catalog at an estate sale. "I was hoping to find some nice toy pictures in this catalog ... I did find over 1600 pages of pure ugly. I present the highlights from this catalog. Some of the pictures inspired stories, comments and questions. Other pictures do not need any commentary at all."
It came from the Sears Catalog was featured in the December 2001 issue of Yahoo Internet Life, page 142. http://www.xmediapartners.com
