Oh my goodness this book is special. This is a Fall/Winter catalogue from 1889 from J. Jay Joslin Dry Goods, Denver Co. which was founded in 1874. In the 1930s is was purchased by Mercantile Stores but they kept the name until 1998 when it closed.

It has the latest fashions, jewelry, linens, toiletries, sewing supplies, Express companies, furniture and more. I had no idea there were so many different models of ladies corsets!

There are 85 pages of yellowed but not brittle pages all beautifully illustrated. There are 3 pages that have had a picture cut out of them and the edges are a little worn here and there. The front cover has a little bite out of it on the lower left. it is 10 5/8 x 7 7/8".

Frequently Asked Questions

When will I receive my refund for a damaged product.

I will happily refund for anything damaged during shipping. However, I must receive pictures of the damage, the box and the wrapping. I will refund you as soon as I receive this in order to file a claim with USPS or Shipsurance.

How much is a custom mermaid?

It depends on the size and the work involved. Custom mermaids start at $50.

I saw an item like this on EBay for less. Can you match the price?


Can you hold an item until I get paid?

No. I have done this before, taken the item out of inventory and then the person never bought. This causes me to have to pay to re-list the item and miss out on other potential sales. Please do not ask me to do this.

Do you ship internationally?

Yes, I do!
