Catalog Favorites

At a time when malls are overcrowded and store selection can be slim, it's nice to have catalogs for mail-order shopping convenience. And thanks to the Internet, finding the perfect catalog with that perfect product has never been easier.

Megasites

With thousands of catalogs at your fingertips, these sites are the ultimate in one-stop shopping.

  • Catalog City
    Not only can you choose from thousands of catalogs, you can skip the paper and order online. Top catalogs include The Sharper Image, Neiman Marcus, Patagonia and The Popcorn Factory. The site also offers gift certificates and a gift registry.

  • Catalog Site and CatalogLink
    These sites work the same way, only their catalog selections are smaller.

  • Catalog Mart
    Ordering catalogs from this site is a snap. Just enter your name and address and select all the subjects you enjoy. Catalog Mart contacts the stores that correspond to your subject, and sends out the catalogs free of charge.




Old Standbys

Your favorite catalogs also offer online ordering. Here's a sampling of the best:

Food

  • Harry & David, famous for its Fruit of the Month Club, offers a great selection of fruits, vegetables, nuts, and gourmet cakes and cookies. (The peaches and pears are to die for.)

  • Cheryl & Co. bakes 18 kinds of cookies that rival Mrs. Fields. (The Cookie of the Month Club is a delicious but dangerous gift.)

  • Dean & Deluca sells the ultimate in gourmet foods (caviar, truffles, pate) plus coffee, tea, cheeses, pastries and preserves.

Clothing

  • Check out the latest clothing and outdoor gear at L.L. Bean and sign up for LLB-Mail to get the scoop on online sales.

  • J. Crew offers an e-mail newsletter service. You can "browse" the clearance section and check out weekly sales.

  • Lands' End offers cool features like Oxford Express, which helps you find the perfect men's dress shirt, and Your Personal Model, a program that allows you to virtually try on potential purchases.

Home

  • Crate & Barrel has something for every room of the home, and the online store is finally up and running. You can also purchase gift certificates and view wedding registries.

  • Chef's Catalog is all about the kitchen.

  • Hammacher Schlemmer offers unique and often expensive items for the person who has everything.

For Women Only

  • Sorry, Avon Ladies -- your clients can also buy their Avon beauty products through the company Web site. (It also offers a virtual beauty advisor and tips on makeup colors and application.)

  • A catalog story wouldn't be complete without mentioning Victoria's Secret. The world's most popular lingerie can now be purchased online.
