Well on QVC they sell kitchen supplies, cookware, food, and cookbooks Sundays starting at noon and Wednesday's starting at like 8pm mainly with David Venable.

On QVC2 on Saturdays at Noon they sell kitchen supplies, cookware, sell food, and cookbooks with Mary.

A few times out the year even HSN does full day cooking with the celebrity chefs they bring in. Curtis Stone, Wolfgang Puck, Ming Tsai come to mind.

I don't believe that I have spent a total of 10 minutes watching a "sales" channel..

On the other hand, I have spent far too long browsing Amazon, etc..

Thanks! I didn't know they sold food. I used to watch them when they were selling a special Breyer horse. I bought one of those off QVC once.

QVC has been on the air for 32 years, long before shopping online. It was the only way to shop at home in those days.

Had the Sears and Monkey Wards catalogues stopped being published by then?

I'm a little surprised how few people know about QVC, and/or their foods.

My mother has watched QVC for years, as do my sisters and wife. So far, the best thing they've bought were Scrub Daddys.

Come to think of it, I believe the catalogues folded several years later, so QVC was at least brand new shopping at home experience. I remember my little boys making their letters to Santa with Sears Christmas catalogues.


I might get them this for next Christmas...https://www.ebay.com/i/362486509358?chn=ps


Edit: Mr. Google said the last Sears catalogue was 25 yrs. ago.
