Fun Fashion Fact

According to Mail Order Retailing in Britain: A Business and Social History, the first product ever sold via mail order may have been Welsh flannel:

“From about 1860, Pryce Jones’ Royal Welsh Warehouse, at Newtown in mid-Wales, carried on an extensive home shopping business, principally in Welsh flannel, at first conveying goods by mail coach and carrier’s cart, later by rail. It claimed to have around 40,000 customers by the end of the 1870s and around 100,000 a few years later. When Pryce Jones died in 1920 the local press credited him with having transformed his retail drapers into ‘an extensive system of shopping by post’.”
