This weekend I picked up an incredible collection from a follower of the blog. I believe I have a near complete run of Banana Republic catalogs, which is quite hard to accomplish! Catalogs 1-16 are just astonishingly rare, and some of these I have never seen before, others I had images for but no way to place them in the timeline. Tremulously excited to begin going through these and sharing them with you. Watch this page for updates!
