1950s Vintage Dresses: Lana Lobell, Hanover, PA catalogs

I found four of these awesome Lana Lobell mail-order catelogs full of color and Black and white Photographs of beautiful 1950s Fashions! One has up to 72 pages; all have circle and squawl skirts, dresses galore and a small section of nighties and lingerie. Most dresses average around $15.00 dollars, and a lovely swing coat can be had for under $30.00. The best part is the catalog's offer of a payment plan: "Buy today with 6 months to pay." I will be sure to include illustrations from within at a later date. For now, enjoy the covers!


  1. Hello,
    When a I was a child I used to look at these catalogs and wish to grow up quickly so I could wear so beautiful dresses.
    Sorry for my english.

  2. HI Lola-
