1912 Logan Gregg Hardware Catalog

Recommended Posts

Everything in this catalog is interesting but I found the gun section particularly interesting. The start around page 991. You can download the whole thing.

Look at page 93. Measuring tapes.

 

Now, this has to be a wholesale place. Buy stuff to sell in your store  And here's a box of a dozen measuring tapes. $4. And the MSRP is marked on the box. 25¢.

 

I buy this box of twelve for $4, sell all of them in my store for 25¢ each. Gross sales $3. Net loss $1. They have two different brands of 25¢ tapes for $4 a dozen, and one of smaller, 10¢ tapes, for $1.60 a dozen.

 

That one's a better deal. You only lose 60¢ per case with them, instead of a dollar, like with the bigger ones. :o:D

No the paper had some other uses. Sears Roebuck was not enough.

Alpo's gone into the mercantile bizness?

Between Buryin' is Us and Alpo's Fine Furniture, I ain't got time to run a general store.

Wow...!  Marble's compasses (pg 990) cost $8 to $27 per dozen... and a Belgian Laminated Steel Shot Gun could be had for $11.25~!  :rolleyes:

Yup, and back then you'd have been lucky to make $2 a day.

The most likely reason it costs $4.00 is that you are paying for the deluxe gold embossed display case as well as the tape measures.

Love the comment on the Savage 1899 in .30-30; “It will kill anything.”

Page 1075, the No. 0 Bench Closer (roll crimper). $7.20 per dozen = 60 cents each!!

I bought the exact same tool from a pard on the wire at least 20 years ago and I think I paid about $25-30. Damn, what a rip off!
