I have almost all of the winter and Christmas wish books from the 70s through the 80s, some 50s and 60s as well.
I am finishing all the major stores (Sears, Montgomery Ward, Woolworth's, JCPennys, Etc)
=)
Will list some soon!

My friend and I sat here and looked through every single page of this wish book and laughed! I remembered a lot of things from there like the Steelers stuff that my brother had. Awesome!

My sister and I used to sit and look at that catalog for hours. My mom couldn't wait for it to come in the mail. I think from November 1 to December 24 we were the best kids ever!
