    Lol, I only read the Sears and Roebucks for the 'articles'. lol I recently stumbled upon the Backwoodsman magazine this spring and that is a awesome magazine. The issue I saw had everything from Tracking to different ways to use innertubes and boards for making fun summer floats. Even had some efficient camping tidbits that have been forgotten over the decades.

    Sears Catalog,from in the house to the outhouse,and the colored pages were not as comfortable.
    Good,Better and Best!By mail order. Should work in the era of the internet.In by gone days,you could buy a home kit, a Model A Ford, a tractor and implements.
    The catalog was quite a learning experience.

    It's a bi-monthly magazine that I stumbled on at one of those big chain book super stores. It publishes mostly user-submitted articles, tricks of the trade from yesteryear, primitive and modern weaponry. From guns, axes, fly tying, gold panning, tanning hides, container gardening, solar panels etc... (That's mainly just the most recent edition) It offers much much more. It's a great "Bathroom Reader" lol. I read them cover to cover and there is no BS in between. It's inexpensive and worth a read! It's my second favorite magazine of all time, second only to the giant Sears catalog that used to come in the mail when I was a wee man. hahaha
    Regrettably, I am old enough to remember the MULTI-USE of the Sears catalog,LOL

    Never heard of this one but I'll be looking for it now,thanks for the info.My dad used to say that when he was a kid the Sears catalog was called "the wish book" because during the Depression all you could do was wish for things in the catalog.
