The company uses its own in-house team to take photographs and write descriptions of each item sold. Shoppers can request a free catalog through the company's website and shop via mail order or over the phone. The catalogs come with an order form that shoppers fill out and send back with their payment method listed. Shoppers can also purchase items through the website, which offers products not listed in the catalog or not available through the catalog. Headquartered in Illinois, the company offers home goods, clothing, jewelry, accessories and other products.
