1989 Arco Catalog

This was a catalog given to store managers, a vendor catalog, also called a dealer catalog, or salesman catalog with manufacturing numbers so store managers could order items to then sell in their stores. Individual pages are sometimes called sell sheets. All items in this catalog could have a packaging date of 1988 or 1989, the date on the Barbie box or fashion pack should be 1988 or 1989.

The photographs in this catalog are similar to production, press or prototype information so the actual dolls and fashions sold in store might be slightly different have different colors, etc. In superstar era there could be a lot of different fabrics each different one called a variation. Special editions and store exclusives may not be listed here, you can see a few of these in the Exclusives book pages I list on my website. To see them all you will have to purchase the entire Exclusives book.

I no longer share catalogs without the website name on them because people posted my images on Facebook and Pinterest without giving me credit. You are welcome to download and repost catalog pages with the watermark on them. A link back to my website is also appreciated.
