1976 Eaton's Spring and Summer Catalogue

1976 Eaton's Spring and Summer Catalogue


So here we have a neat piece of retail shopping history. The 1976 Spring & Summer Eaton's catalogue would be the last catalogue they would ever produce and signaled a shift in the way we consume our goods.
It is in used condition, having some scratches, a couple small tears on the bottom corner(pic 6) and pen on the front cover(pic 8). Appears to have all the pages, no sign of mold, no water damage.
Overall it's in great shape and is so full of wild outfits and appliances from back in the day, it's a win for any reader.

-The Eaton's catalogue was a mail-order catalogue published by Eaton's from 1884 to 1976. It was "one of the first to be distributed by a Canadian retail store"
-In 1974 the Eaton's catalogue lost $17 million. The decline in the catalogue's fortunes was blamed on Canada's shift from a rural to an urban society in the mid-1900s. By 1974, 60 per cent of Canadians lived within a 30 minute drive of an Eaton's store.

Returns and exchange details

Due to the nature of vintage items being used, we cannot guarantee that any item will be in perfect working condition. Oftentimes vintage items need a bit more creativity to operate than a brand new item and can have unique quirks like a stiff button, or wiggly latch. We do our best to thoroughly test and describe the condition of every item we sell.
Returns will be handled on a case by case basis, and partial refunds will not be given under any circumstances.

Returns must be shipped back at customer's expense and original purchase and shipping will be refunded after a case is opened with Canada Post.
