Does anyone have any of those old Christmas Wishbook catalogs from the likes of JC Penny, Sears, or if you’re in the right region for it, Belk? Or perhaps other such stores?

For the uninformed, “wishbooks” were pretty much what they sounded like: phonebook-thick catalogs full of merchandise which could be ordered from its respective store, and in addition to the usual clothes and “practical” stuff one might find year-round, there would also be considerably-sized sections dedicated to toys, video games, and other such fun stuff.

I’m mainly looking for such catalogs from 1980 to… oh, I’d say about 1995 or so, whatever I can get ahold of, or take off one’s hands, for something I’m working on. If you’re able to contribute, please respond below.
