Love to look through the old catalogs. I have two of them - the 1961 and 1965 Spiegel wishbooks. Here are some of the familiar items listed that were in many of our homes back at that time. Melmac dinnerware - unbreakable everyday dishes was used by many families for their family meals. I kept a meat platter for years and I think my daughter has it now.
Another item in most homes - the pole lamp. The one at our house had the glass shades - in an amber color. I always rather liked pole lamps.
This is very similar to the stereo we had. You could pile on 10 or 12 records and have music for a long time. How cool it was to have the sounds coming separately from the speakers. I recall one record we had
we had - Enoch Light and the Light Brigade - where the separation was awesome. Can't believe all that has come and gone since then. I found a little video on Youtube that is from the old album we had. I think I recognized the cover - but regardless it's Enoch Light. http://youtu.be/K7wldS-N92Y. Hope this works in case you would like to hear it. Goodness, this was a long time ago! I also discovered that it's Enoch Light's music that is used for Mad Men's theme song - http://youtu.be/5YE088AE_4Q - you might want to check that out also.
