Do you need any of this stuff? A jacket, a chair, a set of…basket-things.
I doubt it.
But read the copy – Go ahead, zoom in, I'll wait.
Now. You still may not need it, but do want any of this? Aren't you at least a bit curious?
Yeah, me too.
Not just a jacket, but a jacket styled after a 19th century Swedish singing star (and bargain priced too!) Chairs from the Philippines. Baskets from Taiwan. Exotic items from faraway lands, hand-selected to intrigue you. That's the over-the-top word magic that John Peterman was spinning in the 1990s. A man who so believed in the mystique of words that he refused to use photographs for his products.
Honestly, I coulda picked any page, literally any page. Old spanish coins. Wastepaper baskets. Brass scales. I don't need any of them, but I want them all. Booty, Spoils, and Plunder, indeed. Thanks a lot, J. Peterman.
