Be sure to notice the placement of the controls on the electric range about 3/4s of the way through.

Fun! I grew up with Truetone TVs, a stereo, a clock radio, several Wizard lawnmowers, and lots of Wizard hand tools. We are currently clearing out my parents' household and I've dug out some Wizard wrenches and screw drivers. Each of us 4 kids had a Western Flyer bicycle. The first refrigerator I had when I moved out on my own was a Wizard Citation, avocado green, freezer on top model that was bought used off the "swap shop" local radio program. I always liked going in the Western Auto stores.

Affordable pricing and

you could buy stuff on credit.


That vacuum looks suspiciously like a canned-ham Eureka.


You used to see TV tables everywhere.


Those electric range controls are straight on dangerous right there.  That's the spot where one puts dishes and is most likely to spill things.

We had a leaf rake like the one on sale for 77 cents, but it was from much earlier than '62.

The Wizard "Pick-Up" lawn cart looks like the one we had, which was made by Milcor.

My sister got a Western Flyer bike for her birthday when she was 11, which was in '69. I'm thinking it was made by Huffy, but may have been AMF instead.

I always thought their major appliances looked cheap next to GE, Hotpoint, Westinghouse, Whirlpool or Kenmore. I don't know who made those ranges, but it appears that both the gas and electric models probably had the same source.

The electric stove looks like they took a built-in 30" and simply mounted it on top of this free -standing model.
