Vintage Photo Friday - Shopping

Boutique Noel, L.A. Department Store, 1950's

Yes, this weekend will be full of holiday shopping. We'll be at craft and jewelry shows, estate sales, sidewalk sales and more (see yesterday's post for details)! Here are a few photos of Los Angeles shopping scenes from the past. All photos were found on the Los Angeles Public Library Photo Collection site.

After our day of shopping, I envision Rhoda and I will probably look like this:
