Image result for sears catalog

i sure hate to see it go
i remember when i was younger getting that sears catalog and going through it all seeing the wishmes that were scattered throughout the catalog

at sites that had an outhouse only
i remember tearing those sears roebuck catalog pages out
crinkling them up so they would be softer
done that for sure several times

the catalog was like an amazon search old school version
anything it seemed you wanted you could get there

all our appliances we bought were sears kenmores
washing machines

once i worked for a tool company while my wife she was in graduate school
we made the ratchet tools for sears
i must say their quality control was strict
even today ill pick up a competitors wrench and can spot the defects on it
those craftsman tools i owned a lot of

the advantage over amazon was that when you went into sears looking at something you could touch it turn it off and on move it around smell it pick it up
on amazon you cant do that until it arrives at your door
i know amazon is pretty liberal at taking back things
thats no comparison to going to sears to see things before you buy them

we are in a new world

there are things ill miss not having sears around for

whats a shopper to do who likes to do hands on purchasing

i guess like we always do
well just have to adjust
