Three Muses - Home Sweet Home

There was a day when a young couple could get married, and order their home from Sears & Roebuck! From 1908 to 1940, many a young couple chose their home from the pages of a Sears catalog. For $650 to $2500 ($35 to $65 a month), their new home would be delivered via rail, all packaged down to the last nail and ready for construction. Many of these homes continue to be sturdy houses today. In the 90's, while on vacation in Virginia, my friends and I drove down a street of Sears & Roebuck homes, still tidy and welcoming. My collage shows one of the homes and a newspaper ad. The bridal couple are from Flickr Collage Images, but they may well have lived in a Sears & Roebuck home! Thanks for listening, and Merry Christmas!
