Look what I found!!

A woman I know called me up today and said that she has 3 bags full of goodies for counted cross stitch. This old Mary Maxim catalog was in one of the bags. It’s in mint condition, still containing the order form and it even includes 2 yarn sample cards! This thing must have been stored well, because it is in amazing condition! =) It’s catalog # 16, while the catalog I got in the mail the other day is #478B. Looking through the old one, I’m figuring it’s most likely late 60’s, maybe early 70’s, just based on the hair styles and some of the clothes the models are wearing.

Cool, huh? =)
