I remember

Got to thinking about the Christmas season today and I was reminded of the Rikes Store windows. When I was a young girl my mother would bundle us up take us to see the window display. We would walk down our street to the corner bus stop and get on the RTA bus and ride it downtown. We didn’t go downtown but one time a year so this was a big deal for us.
Here are a few pictures of the displays that now resides in the Schuster Center on Main St in Downtown Dayton.

These are just a few pics of this wonderful display. It brings back many great childhood memories.
If you get the opportunity to come to Dayton this is a must see!

  1. I love the details … like the one with the mother and her hair in rollers (do women still do that?!). There is miscellaneous stuff all over the coffee table. Glad to see my home is not the only one guilty of that 🙂

    Thanks for the reminder that I need to make a trip downtown to see the Christmas window displays!
