Anyone else remember flipping through Fireworks Catalogs as a kid? I feel like it'd always be one of the bad kids in school who brought in one of those things. Shiny paper with pages and pages of colorful piles of explosives. We'd huddle and slowly flip through. The photos were enticing. As you worked your way through the catalog, the piles of fireworks in each photo would grow larger and larger. As would the prices.
Totally illegal in this state, so it made the entire experience pretty exciting.
It seems small knives and Chinese stars were always catalog favorites too.
