Dressing a window for a retail space for Christmas has been a tradition for a long time! It's part of the fabric of Christmas movies and shopping that still brings a smile to our season.
This old retail window display is not 'Christmasy' like the others but oh...it can take you back!

Love these old vintage chairs hung on the wall and used to hang product on!
"We took a walk through downtown and viewed the beautifully decorated storefronts. This window display was my favorite. My wife purchased several small presents here. The store employees were so nice et gift boxed all the presents we purchased. We plan to return next year and spend more time taking in this wonderful towns stores and restaurants."
This is gorgeous!
Agree, Diane! You can see the old tin ceilings through the beautiful display window. And someone turned on the snow just for atmosphere! :)
This photograph shows some of America's most loved brands, including Coca Cola, Rice Krispies and 7UP, advertised in shop windows, and fresh produce including oranges and potatoes selling for as little as 1c.
Before there was a Walmart on every corner and suburban malls inhabited most of the nations cities and towns, these photographs show Main Street as it always was, and in some places still is -- the heartbeat of small town America.
Fun, fun and fun. I so love Christmas.
Yes, we are in full on Christmas mode now!
