At XXI Forever: “Let the Deals Glow”
Apparently, black and white are the new black and white!
…but I did go downtown today, and took 222 shots! I promised to take you to the Walnut Room at Macy’s, the former Marshall Field’s, where every Christmas season since 1899, the Great Tree has been a Great Attraction! Here’s just a teaser, as I have so much more to process….
The Top Eleven Feet of the Great Tree
…about three feet wide in Macy’s (the former Marshall Field’s) Washington Street display windows. They all advertise Holiday Lane on the 6th floor, which I hope to visit tomorrow, and each window has a different theme!
Angels and Polar Bears and Snowmen…Oh, Brrr!
Almost every Santa you can imagine…and Mrs Claus, too!
Little Children love Comical Bears and a Jack-in-the-Box!
Every kind of Nutcracker, a Drummer Bear, and Dorothy, the Cowardly Lion, the Scarecrow and, of course, the Tin Man, too!
Shortly, I’ll have more from Macy’s, including the huge, forty-five foot tree in the Walnut Room, a tradition begun in 1899 by Marshall Field’s.
…or is Macy’s just a bit needy?
As I walked up Washington Street in downtown Chicago yesterday, I was taken aback with the Christmas decorations already up inside Macy’s (formerly Marshal Field’s) State Street store. The main State Street windows are still under construction, but the interior of the first floor seems to be in full Christmas season regalia. I didn’t have time to step inside as I was on my way to vote EARLY…maybe next week, I’ll go downtown again, stop in, and see how much progress is being made on the Great Tree in the Walnut Room restaurant!
