The 1990s really aren’t that far behind us, but when you look at what people were wearing and what kind of products they were buying, it looks like ancient history. It actually looks like some bad, acid-washed nightmare. The clothes were ridiculous, and the technology looks like something from the Stone Age.
The Sears Holiday Wish Book from 1990 captures this era in all its glory. This is seriously what got the public excited a mere 27 years ago. Prepare for a painful trip down Memory Lane.
Take a look at these amazing products and try to recall the strangeness that was the early 1990s.
Does it come with a rotary phone?
Wait, I have one of these…
The original design for airplane headphones.
I wouldn’t be care free in those.
Is the TV actually just a framed photo? What’s up with those dolls? What is happening here!?
Ahh. The ’90s were innocent times, times when all grandparents wore turtlenecks beneath their crewcut sweatshirts.
I definitely don’t own that bag. I promise. Seriously…
“Conversation Pieces”! This is the ultimate pun!
TBH, that’s a decent price again now.
This was quite a journey. Thanks for the ride Sears!
