A few weeks ago, Secondary Roads ran a series on the Sears, Roebuck and Company housing project. Chuck showed us a fine example of a house that was purchased from Sears once upon a time.
Do you remember when you could buy an automobile from Sears? You could stop at your local Kaiser-Frazer dealer and purchase a "Henry J", or you could go around the corner to Sears, Roebuck and order an "Allstate." Or you could use the catalogue. Albeit rebadged, but virtually unchanged in appearance, you would get the same vehicle.
Though I never owned one of these, I did drive a 1953 Kaiser Manhattan for several years.
(I would credit the photo, but I put it in my car collection long ago and don't know who took the picture.)
