Yes, I am talking about Marshall Field's. It has been some time now since this beloved Chicago retail giant was bought out by Macy's. I still miss Field's and rarely even go inside Macy's, let alone purchase something there. However, when I read in the paper that the tree in the Walnut Room was to be lit this past weekend, and the holiday windows were up and running, I suggested to my sis, Diann, that we go for a visit to the downtown location. Together, we had a wonderful pre-Christmas outing there this week! In the spirit of Thanksgiving thankfulness, I offer my heartfelt gratitute to Macy's for:
1. Keeping the landmark clock.
2. Keeping the magic in the window displays.3. Still calling it the Walnut Room. 5. Continuing the sale (and making of) Frango Mints.
I suppose I should also thank the woman who took our picture in front of the store while mananging to smoke her cigarette at the same time. Now, that takes talent!
