Sears Ads - Fall 1905

Here is a collection of headstones that appeared in the Sears Catalogue in the Fall of 1905. I am sure many of you have seen a number of these dotting the landscape of some of your favorite haunts. I know I have.


  1. I had no idea that one could order headstones out of a catalog back then. If only the prices were the same today.

  2. Sheri - Back in those days I think you could get just about everything from the Sears catalogue. From what I've been told it was one of the main places people bought things.

  3. So interesting. How many thousands of the lamb headstones have we seen? And I still have to take a pic of everyone on them. $10.00 for a headstone may sound cheap but that was probably more than most people made in a year back then.
