That "nickel plated three bar towel rack". I just bought one of them.




It cost a little bit more than six cents, but this one's stainless.


That thing underneath the upholstery tacks - that had me confused. I thought the c was an e, and was searching trying to figure out what the hell a mining knife was. And why they spelled it minEing.


MinCing. Oh.

Almost like it was in common practice historically to mail order guns without a background check

Sears invented the loss leader, sold stuff everybody needed at a loss. Once they figured out how easy it was they'd order bigger more expensive stuff. I have a bookcase/ writing desk, on the back is my grandfathers name and the town he lived in. At first I couldn't figure out why he wrote his address on his furniture, then realized it was probably Sears that did it when they shipped it to him.
