found this full page ad in one of my organic gardening machines for that yr. Don't see many Sears ad's in other magazines. due to their huge mail order catalog , found in almost every home at the time, they didn't have to due much more. I miss the old catalogs, especially the Christmas wish book.

I would have loved to have seen these on the show room floor.

Wouldn't it be cool to get a Sears Store to let us display some of them for the weekend?

Be hard to even find a Sears store anymore, the one out here at the big mall closed up a couple of yrs ago. Sears used to put out a calendar of Craftsman equipment. It had all sorts of old power tools and lawn/garden equipment, I think its gone away also.

Hometown store near me. If my stuff was nicer, I would approach the owner.

The good old days when it was Sears-Roebuck. Now it's Sears-Kmart. Soon to be nothing but a memory.

The Sears Suburban catalog was the one I always looked forward to. The last of the 2 wheelers, and attachments were listed. Dad ordered a new planter in about 1961-62. Used it one year, and didn't like the way it planted. Went back to the Sears & Roebuck corn jobber, and dropping beans by hand. Not sure what the problem was, as I've used mine for 2 years now, and it does a decent job.
