Here is a recent junk store find, a ”Monnig’s Dry Goods Co. of Fort Worth, Texas” catalogue from 1962.

The majority of the catalogue is in black and white.

However a few were in color, including the rick rack and other trims

and zippers.

Sewing supplies were not the only things in the catalogue although it took up about a quarter of the catalogue.  They sold a little bit of everything.  Bobby pins, pot and pans, baby clothing and accessories, Band Aids, the works.

It’s lots of fun to browse through the pages and remembering “the good old days.”  Baby, we’ve come a long, long way.
