Ten on Tuesday - 5/24/2011
Carole's topic this week is Ten Favorite Mail Order Catalogues.
Back in the day, when I was a bachelorette and then young married person, I ordered consistently from the following:
2. Isabella Bird
3. Knights Ltd.
4. Lillian Vernon
5. The Speigel Catalogue
The UPS man actually asked me once why I would order all that stuff, just to send it back. (The nerve...) Didn't he know that if something didn't fit, a person shouldn't keep it? And that extra step of waiting when having to send something back and having a different size sent is the main reason I don't shop for clothes through the mail much anymore...
These days, although I don't really shop for clothes much through mail order, I like these catalogues to see what's in the stores and if it is worth it to go:
7. Coldwater Creek
Finally, even though I have several wonderful LYSs fairly close, and the world wide web is endless, I love to receive these catalogues to hold in my hand, turn the pages, and add things to my wishlist:
That's it...that's the list!
