1956 Gifts and Toys from Woolworth's Catalog

Woolworth's, one of the first U.S. retailers to put merchandise out for the shopping public to handle and select without the assistance of a sales clerk, was once a fixture in many prominent American downtowns.

This vintage 1956 Christmas catalog from the retail pioneer, featuring amazing graphics, photos, and display inspiration, offers 63 pages of Christmas decor, housewares, furniture, clothing, gift ideas, and more . . . including a 20 page "Toyland" section. From $1.98 nightgowns to $2.98 folding bridge tables, this booklet offers an amazing selection of what the "hot gifts" were that year. This is a great gift for fans of vintage ephemera or students of 20th century retail.
