Shopping For Holiday Pajamas Back In 1957
Remember when you could buy pajamas in the same pattern for members of your family? Just think of waking up Christmas morning with Red Candy Cane P.J.'s that were ordered from the 1957 Sears Christmas catalog. For just under $3.00 - 5.00 (each) every member of the family could be decked out for the holidays in warm cotton flannelette. For under a dollar you could also order the matching red and white striped night cap. And of course you need to have dolly clothed in the same outfit. Yes back in the 50,s matching pajamas, dresses, coats etc. were popular.
