Sears Calling

Don’t you just love looking at your favorite catalog models? …Remember sneaking them into the bathroom for a little dreamy privacy, and — what? You didn’t get that way over the latest telephone models from American Bell and GTE?

Not the Flip-Phone or the Fashion Plate? Not even the Princess telephone?!


I guess I’m just weird that way.

Two pages from the Fall-Winter 1983 Sears catalog.

  1. and this is why the world is going to hell in a handbasket (whatever that means!) – by 1983 you couldn’t get a Princess phone in pink! like baby blue was the same thing!

  2. I still fantasize about a pretty pink Princess phone, and I don’t even have a land line. They should make a really small version of a Princess phone, but in cell phone form. Hey, I might be onto something here!
    Your site really makes me laugh. Thank you for that!
