Vintage store interior


La Crosse, Wisconsin - circa 1965

Just an old shot I like a lot. The mannequins keep a watchful eye on us here in the Erickson Merrill Woolen Mill Store, "La Crosse's newest and most modern clothing store", as the back caption reads. Really love those swanky floor tiles, especially!

Actually, call me crazy, but I LIKE the clothes!

How nice if your floor matches the sweaters or cardigans you're selling? But what do you do when the fashion changes?

Though I agree with Didi that some of those clothes look nice. But then I've always been into vintage clothing.

That place looks like a ski lodge on top and a supermarket on the bottom.

Come to think of it, Steven, the floor did remind me of the floor at the local Jewel i stop at from time to time.

Wait, the woman in powder blue is a mannequin?
Dear god, they made them, ahem, very well endowed back then!
I first thought it was a woman wearing a cross your heart bra! Lift and separate!

How can a mannequin model a cross-your-heart bra, if she doesn't have anything to model it with?

Being reminded of what these places used to look like growing up too!

I'll bet some girl with hip, expensive taste had to go here with her mother to buy ugly clothes. I can see it now.
