You sat at home and went through it and marked the items that were on your wanted list.

The kids marked theirs in the toy section.

A real trip down memory lane. I'm still using the set of two Pyrex casserole dishes (Chelsea pattern - although I never knew this) and apparently they were £1.55 for a 2 and 3 pint set. They were a wedding present over 50 years ago and not a mark or chip on them.
