Last summer, I came across a blog about a guy who found a 1977 JC Penney’s Catalog in an attic, and I laughed so hard I cried. One of my first entries from 2008, was called The funniest blog and it included a link to his blog about some of the fashions in the catalog.
Now, Johnny Virgil over at 15 Minute Lunch, has posted a part 2 and part 3 to his blog about the catalog. Again, I laughed so hard I cried. This time at more ridiculous fashions, furniture, ‘ground-breaking’ electronics, video games and exercise equipment from 1977.
I was 6 years old back then and it’s scary to know that I most likely dressed like that. Good grief, I hope I didn’t dress like that! And why don’t I remember playing Pong?
The following links contain some “mature” language.
Note: I do remember playing Pong! It just took a while to come to me.
Here I am in 1976. It isn’t 1977, but close enough.
