Welcome to Everything Croton, a collection of all things Croton--our history, our homes, our issues, our businesses, our schools, our houses of worship--in short, EVERYTHING CROTON.
A former village resident was nostalgic for the days when she would shop with her Mom for the Easter holiday right here in the village. And so, by special request...Vintage Easter Shopping in Croton....some links you might enjoy:
There was the trip to Swanson's for daffodils, lilies and of course, to order Mom's orchid corsage. Friday nights during Lent meant fish from Cole's Market or a night out for "fried flounder" at "the diner", Easter cards, chenille chicks, and chocolate came from Pop Berger's--while straw baskets, plastic eggs, lace-trimmed ankle socks (to go with those new Easter shoes) and other assorted odds and ends came from Elliott's and the old Grand Union (DON'T FORGET THOSE TRIPLE S BLUE STAMPS!)
STAY TUNED FOR MORE...........
