And then…the DOLLS!

As I understand, these dolls are very coveted by little girls, and you can purchase a ‘girl-size’ matching outfit for your daughter!

Little girl dolls, even baby dolls, and loveable teddies, too!

Up on the snowy hill...the perfect place for every doll to play...even bay doll seems to be having fun!

There are four little spaces…

…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!

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.
