I can assure you she went hungry before she would allow the kids to......it’s a common trait amongst the better half of our population. Dad would make us “fend for ourselves”....dogs wasn’t real fat either, lean and trim, wasn’t a whole lot of scraps....momma would put all the leftovers in soup on Friday. I sure wish we woulda known or had access to fresh milk. I hated that powdered milk, wasn’t too bad in cereal....
Speaking of Sears and Roebuck, did y’all have a candy “kiosk” in the store? Mom would give us each a quarter to get some candy in a bag.....man was it delicious. I always got dipped peanuts or malted milk balls.....needed .26 cents tho, had to pay Uncle Sam too :o
Sears used to wrap a lot of presents too....they had expert wrappers. Of course Santa was taking pictures a lot at Sears too.....I miss Sears and Roebuck, the store, the catalogue....their merchandising method of “good”, “better” “best”. They just never adapted.....

I don't think ours had the candy but I still would have spent my quarter on the little plane ride out by the front door. Darn thing never got off the ground.

I've said for years that Amazon is the new age sears. If sears would have gone to the internet and did what the catalog did it would still be here.

I miss Sears and Roebuck, 

 

I miss the old Craftsman hand tools.   Nothing better on Christmas morning to see something shiny under the tree with "Craftsman" written on it.

Especially the catalogue, seems as a young boy I might have looked at more than just the toy section. :o   No not the tool section either, give you a hint, most of them were white.  ;)

Yes , the one in Five Points , Columbia SC had a candy counter. My Dad always got hot cashews when we went in and ate them while walking around.

The one in Augusta, GA had a candy and nut counter too.  Those hot cashews were great!  It was always a big deal to go.  We would go on Sunday cause GA didn't have blue laws and the stores were open.  SC was dead silent on Sunday.  Not anymore.
