Posh shops for when my clothes were bought for me. C&A when I was buying my own!


I've just realised what that must sound like!!!

All I meant was that my gran would save up for ages and take me to one of the good department stores to by me a 'quality' skirt. When I was old enough to buy my own clothes I much preferred to have a couple of cheaper skirts so I could change my clothes more often to be in fashion rather than having something that would be the same for years.
My gran didn't have much but what she did have was 'good' stuff.
Funnily enough, I changed into my gran as I got older!

Does anyone remember a shop called 'Dallas' which was near the Cowcaddens subway?
Also there used to be a lane over to the right of that shop going towards the city where there was a row of shops and I've wondered for many years where those shops were and what shops were there...that's all I can remember....
lovely big shop , remember it well.. it always had crystal in the window.. thought very posh..

Cant remember it for the life of me, but the last thing I bought to wear in Glasgow was at the main CO-OP store. It was a genuine Harris tweed jacket on sale ( too bright fur Glesga) for 5 pounds! Very cheap. also bought a pair of indestructible leather soled shoes for 35 shullins.

I still have a photo of me at a wedding wearing said jaickit. And the shoos.

Does anyone remember the really expensive food shop in Union Street called Ferguson's? Just down a bit from the entrance to Central Station.
As a rare treat we would get some amazing cakes from there. I still dream about their peach flan!

What is with Winnipegs apparent obsession with department stores? Ive heard this noted before by Winnipeggers, and the stores just seemed out of proportion with the size of the city.

That is common to mall major Canadian cities. The small enterprises were chocked of by massive malls and "enclosures" posing as shopping centres. The loss of speciality shops is irreversible.

If you wish to see the peoples preference got to False Creek Vancouver at the weekend. People are more than willing to pay the extra and go the extra mile for artisan produced quality foods.

Never heard of that one, but I have been in a Tokyo department store wher the train stopped at a platform in the actual store.
