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".
Payment must be recieved prior to shipping. I fulfill your order within 5 business days of receiving your order M-F. If for some reason, I am unable to ship with in 5 business days, I will let you know if something happens that I can't so you can decide if it can wait, however, I strive never to do that. I do not usually work the weekend so if you order something Friday nite, it will most likely not ship until Monday.
I use standard shipping costs for different size items. In reality it may be more to ship or may be a little less. What you see is what you get & I believe my prices reflect that and are worth it. Whatever shipping cost is on the item is what you pay. With the cost of different boxes etc. it just makes sense to use a flat fee for certain items. I don't add the cost of mailing products to the item, but I depend on my shipping costs to include that. I have had instances when my international shipping has been way off, and if that is the case, I do refund that part of the shipping cost. I insure EVERYTHING. That adds to the cost of shipping of course. I have found not insuring increases the likelihood of damage and/or lost packages, but the discounts I receive on shipping through Etsy cover it.

Because of the nature of these items, unless they arrive damaged or defective, I can't accept returns for:

If you don't like the item or it's not what you thought, I am sorry but I cannot refund or exchange. Please read descriptions. My vintage items are sold "as is".
