Got my new Lang’s catalog in the mail today. Like the new “barn find” edition with applied patina! 😀

Looks like the postal service really enjoyed reading it! Maybe we know where all the missing parts have gone to :lol:

I received 2 copies in pristine condition!

I'm still waiting for an Ebay purchase that's several days overdue. I'm told the P.O. is having a heck of a time with the weather around the U.S. this winter. That might explain the condition of your catalog.

Several years ago I received a catalog in the mail, completely shredded up in a ziploc bag. There was a note from the Postmaster in the bag, apologizing and explaining how postal employees go to great length to preserve the mail. There was also a complaint form included if I wished to send it to Washington.

The catalog? A Harriet Carter catalog full of porcelain knick knacs and decorative junk that I never ordered...........

:twisted:
USPS about 15 years ago, lost a whole months worth of bills that I mailed out. CC, house payment, utilities...all posted almost 2 months after I sent them.
Cost me several hundred dollars and USPS couldn't give 2 $hit$ !! First, prove it and then file a complaint and see if you get a penny.
Online bill pay ever since and save on stamps.

Really enjoying the catalog nevertheless. Lot’s of new stuff. It’s only the first few pages that got chewed up and it would have ended up this way anyway.

I am delighted with the new catalog too. Martynn's illustrations are fantastic and well used. It makes me want to order a bunch of stuff I don't need yet. I order from some other great vendors too but often Lang's shows things the others don't. We are lucky this stuff is available. Restore a White sometime. Then you'll see why I learned to make my own parts.

I thought it was the Highland Park plant in the photo. Care to enlighten us?

Looks like there's are hinges for a driver's side door. That would be Canadian.

My catalog was pretty torn up and I wrote to Langs suggesting they consider using an envelope. They responded the next day and was sending a new one. Hope it makes it!! Langs is the best!

I got mine torn and wrinkled like the last time, but only the cover. It's what's inside that counts and Lang's is the best.

Haven't gotten mine yet maybe next week sometime. Anyhoo, every one of the drawings you see in any of their catalogs is also available here in the Gallery section, and can be downloaded.
