This mini-catalog was in the December 1977 issue of Reader's Digest.  Not much to say about it except - holy crap this stuff was expensive! I guess that's what happens when you don't use Vietnamese child labor and actually pay U.S. citizens a living wage to make stuff in the States.  Novel concept, huh?

I'll include a few prices in 2012 dollars below the pictures. For instance, that $21.97 tape recorder (above) would cost approximately $83 in today's U.S.dollars



Oster Kitchen Center = $371.19

Coffee Maker = $64.36

Blow Dryer = $56.77

View-Master = $56.43

Polaroid SX-70 = $416.70

Admiral color TVs = $2188.17
