It's no secret. Your editor and the Elves love to share interesting posts dedicated to the department stores of yesteryear--foreign or domestic--it makes no difference to us.
Yes, most of us remember the
days when a trip to the department store----anytime but especially at
Christmas (AND HALLOWEEN AND EASTER!)----was an exciting "event".
And so--here's an updated post---because we just love the old department stores!
