The Sears Catalogue, 1980
Only god knows how the hell we ended up with a Sears catalogue in the living room – I’m guessing it had something to do with the flight attendant that lived next door. But the thing is that this catalogue accompanied me for years until I somehow lost it 6 years ago. It’s was a fascinating take on the American shopping culture – seeing those kids wearing american football pijamas, or hulk costumes was very entertainning. Also, the Star Wars toys, the MAD game (I’m still curious about that) and the fact that Sears had their own Atari console, with the same looks and cartridges was very mysterious to me.
Oh don’t let me forget the Kiss Make-up set, how amusing that was.
