Friends, this has been quite a week! I was in jury duty and actually came thiiiissss close to being selected. For 2.5 days I was Juror #6….sat in the jury box, was interviewed by the defense and the prosecution. It was pretty exciting. I was a little torn, partly wanting to be excused and partly dying of curiosity how the case was going to play out. It was a very dramatic trial with a kinda creepy defendant (even his attorney would say things like, “Even if you think my client is weird. Even if you think he’s got a bizarre lifestyle or seems unappealing….you must presume he is innocent!” Wow. Way to defend your guy!). Our jury panel had a host of intriguing characters too, including a totally sweet looking older woman who during jury questioning said, “Have I ever been convicted of a crime? Um, yes. Vandalism.” What??? She then quickly added, “But it’s ok, I’ve taken anger management courses and I’m back on track.” Double wow! Eventually I was excused. And a little disappointed, I can’t lie!

Anyway, I haven’t been online much this week nor able to blog, but I’ll be back next week in full force. To tide you over in the meantime, I have a few images from an old 1976 Sears catalog that I thought were kind of hilariously awesome. Enjoy!

YES! That’s Shelly Hack, in her Pre-Charlie’s Angels modeling days.

Just in case you missed it….here’s a close up of the boys jammin’

SASSY! I do love that logo. Hey, HANDS OFF muh jeans!

This calculator cracks me up. Could it possibly have MORE keys???

And of course, some adorable kiddos in their colorful gear. Oh, to have THESE babies in the Retro Roundup!

HEE HAW! Happy Friday people!

    Oh my god, I want every single one of those appliqued outfits the little girls are wearing! I will skip the “Hands Off” jeans, though.

  2. Dottie says

    Phew jury #6! Close call, but that sounds like the craziest case! Wow!

    Oh the dinner conversations that have been had after a Christmas dinner about HANDS OFF brand clothing. Turns out my ever budget conscious mother used to buy HANDS OFF clothes when my brothers wanted HANG TEN. Instead of two feet, they had the two hands logo. My brothers are STILL traumatized by it. Who knew they were so label concious as 10 year olds in the seventies?

    Ha! Sounds like some great stories could have come out of that trial! I’ve always worried about getting put on jury duty because of the nervous pees. I just KNOW that I’d have to go the bathroom every ten minutes out of excitement while in the jury box. Love those ads! I actually had those Hee-Haw overalls as a kid. And I’d love to have that little kitty cat outfit.

  4. Catherine says

    Ha! I stopped reading at “I can’t lie” then jumped to the photos. And by god at the last one I could swear I was 5 years old devouring the Sears catalog again. Scanned back up, sure enough, Sears! Thanks for the flashback.

    I had those HEE HAW overalls! so did my bother!
    xo

    I remember my grandma sewing me a brown plaid outfit (like the little boys’ separates!) for a fashion show. I didn’t hate the print then, but boy- the fabric was very scratchy.

    i just sold those hee haw overalls in my shop! was tempted to keep them but they were too small for any of my kids!

  8. Susan E says

    oh my goodness. Hee Haw overalls??? That’s too much. I was born in 1975. I’m shocked I didn’t get those as a hand me down somehow. I watched that silly show all of the time.
