Catalogue website

If you're working on a project dated between 1937 and 1998, you might want to check out this site.

There are almost 60 Christmas Wishbook catalogues from the U.S. and Canada.

I looked at the 1957 Simpson-Sears Christmas Wishbook and it would serve as a guideline for just about anything you would want to put in a room/house: toys, games, fashion, furniture, china, silver, kitchen appliances, accessories, jewellery. You name it.

For those of you who want to be historically accurate, this is a treasure trove.

For those of us who just want to bring back memories, it's a joy.

Either way, I hope you'll check it out and enjoy wandering through memory lane.
