I love that you could buy a home from Sears!! The prices boggle the mind. They are definitely old fashioned, with relatively small rooms. They remind me of my grandparent's house in Minnesota!

Super post!!! I used to work for Sears (Canoga Park 1980-1982). We use to joke about the house's Sears used to sell, but hey, they look pretty nice! Did you know they tried to sell cars too? I believe it was thru the "Allstate" name, but was really just a an early 50's Kaiser! I think it flopped big time!

There will be some more cool houses from the 20's and 30's tomorrow.

Hey Major you think its a buyers market at these prices? Awesome.

Tim, I remember that. Allstate insurance and cars nobody else would handle. LOL

These are amazing pics. The house in the color ad is larger than my previous impression of Sears homes.
