I am sooooo excited to introduce this new post series to y’all, as it feature one of mine and Brigid’s most favorite vintage resources in the whole-wide-world; that is, the vintage Sears & Roebucks Catalogs!
Now before we go on, I would like to thank Rochelle who brought the availability of these files on Ancestry.com to our attention! When we found out that we could both access & save the files to our computer, Brigid and I pretty much died! I’ve often found myself wishing to post on the blog about some adorable, inspirational page from a few reproduction catalogs of Brigid’s, but, because of copyright restrictions, was not able to without some hassle. Thank you again, Rochelle for letting us know about this treasure; and Ancestry for making these files available! 😀
I would seriously recommend you getting a free trial on Ancestry, if only for the use of these files.
So onto what the posts are about:
As you can tell from the title, the posts will initially feature one (or two) digital “clippings” from the Sears & Roebucks Catalogs of the 1920s through early 60s. Sound fun? Good!
Here we go…

I fell in love right off the bat when I found this page, and several others like it. The sweaters are absolute bliss, don’t you think? Just look at those bows and color blocking details on letter B, or the darling polka-dots on letter D! Seriously, I wouldn’t mind just flipping through pages and pages of such fabulous jumpers… Nor own a few of them 😉
