Bonus Sunday

Welcome to Bonus Sunday. Today we've got something a little different, a Gifts Catalog from Knott's Berry Farm for the 1954-55 Season. There's some great artwork in here, especially on the first few and last few pages.





















Now I'm in the mood for something with Boysenberries in it, I think I'll use this handy order form.









Side note: Last week on Bonus Sunday I posted the Spring 1982 Edition of Vacationland Magazine. A keen blog reader noticed that page 23 was missing, wow, someone actually reads these things? The corrected version can be found here (link).

That was cool! Does anybody sell those dried fruit trays anymore. As a kid, I was the only weirdo in the family that actually liked them.

Connie - sign me up for the dried fruit tray as well! Hell - I STILL like fruitcake, too!

Everything is lovingly wrapped in colored cellophane, which somehow makes it feel old fashioned! What a great catalog.

That was SWELL! I especially like the pencil sketches of the Covered Wagon Show diorama and Ghost Town.

Thank you so much for posting this heartwarming catalog. I know some of us have memories of getting and giving Knott's jellies and preserves, especially at Christmas. I still have two of the 6-jar boxes with the empty jars inside.
