Even though the weather is cold and snowy, people still enjoy window shopping. We hope that you will join us each week as we describe a few things that attract our attention on Main Street in Hazard in 1961.
As we walk up the street, one of Dawahare's Tots and Teens window decorations remind us that this is Boy Scout Week. The Boy Scout uniforms they have advertised there brings to mind the many fine things that our boys learn in this organization.
If you enjoy reading, we saw just the thing for you in Newberry's window. They have a stand of books that can be bought at a bargain price. Being bargain hunters, we looked through them and found quite a few we will enjoy reading.
The art work in Sherwin William's window is certainly an eye-catcher. They have a beautiful landscape picture on display. Stile's Jewelry Store really has a cute advertisement in the window. We just adored the little Prehistoric Men they are using to advertise Bulova watches.
The windows in George's Shoe Store are covered with "Sale" banners, but we were able to see in the door. Our curiosity was well satisfied. The signs on Wills Ready To Wear window aroused our curiosity.
The Fout's Drug Store window is decorated with heart-shaped boxes of candy for Valentine's Day. We also saw some nice Valentine Cards in Engle Florist Shop's window. We see that there is a new business open next to the Bus Station - Payne & Hurt - who handle wholesale plumbing equipment. We hated to see the PX Trading Post go out of business, but we wish this new business good luck.
On our way home we stopped to admire the cute little what-nots in Baker Furniture Store. Well, we hope you enjoyed our trip down Main Street Hazard in 1961. Join us next week when we go window shopping again.
