MORE OLD DEPARTMENT STORE NOSTALGIA

CLICK ON THE PHOTO
As many of you know, we love sharing interesting blogs and websites dedicated to the department stores of yesteryear--foreign, domestic, makes no difference to us. We remember the days when a trip to the department store anytime--but especially at Christmas--was an "event".

And so here are some more links you may find of interest. Because we just love the old department stores!

All these sites have lots of great info, links, history and photos. Enjoy!

  1. A really neat collection of links. Thank you so much. Malls just don't offer the same kind of experience and it's a shame whole generations will never know what I'm talking about.
