It is often said that you could purchase just about anything from the Sears catalog. That included marble headstones, tombstones, and grave markers. All were made in Vermont and shipped directly to the customer. You can read the entire 1902 Sears Tombstones and Monuments catalog on the Internet Archive.

Original Text of this page:

SEARS, ROEBUCK & CO., CHICAGO, ILL.

THIS MOST MAGNIFICENT MARBLE MONUMENT
Shaped the same as granite monuments costing three times the price, can be owned by you at $90.00 and upwards, according to size.
