Before Dillard's

It was Stix, Baer, and Fuller with the very best logo. This tag is from the 50's, the colors used changed over the decades.

My Grandmother tells fascinating stories of shopping in St. Louis.

"First I would go downtown to Styx, then to my favorite, which was Scruggs. Then Judy and I would ride the streetcar to the Central West End and have lunch outside at a cafe terrace. We would end the day at Saks. Imagine a time when a lady could be fitted for a dress while enjoying a glass of brandy with a cigarette...and of course we'd never dream of leaving the house without a hat and gloves. Now you're lucky to see a lady properly covering her legs."

I wish I lived then. But I'll take the stories from my Grandmother as a close second.
