So Cool


So, as you know, I have a fascination with houses. Well, did you know that in days long past you could look through your Sears, Roebuck & Co. catalog and order a house?
I have known about that for a while (it always makes me smile to think of it), but I found a good blog posting about them so go here to see some of catalog pictures vs. the homes in real life that still exist. And then go here to see some interior pictures.

I don't think you are crazy, I think that is AWESOME that Sears used to sell houses! Ha! I would have never known that. Thanks for the fun info.

Hello! I live in Connellsville PA, and live in a Sears house! There is only one other in our town! It is pretty amazing that you could purchase these houses from Sears! We're currently remodeling and have found many amazing things in this old house!
