Remembering Rhode Island's
Good Ol' Days
Who remembers Calart's great CHRISTMAS DISPLAY back in the 1960s? We always had a night where we "went out to see the lights" and ended our tour at Calart's.
My mom was a Calart shopping addict and left me all that stuff to sell after she passed away. I had flowers and wicker baskets that filled entire rooms. The only one I liked going to was the Providence location because it was magical.
I grew up near Calarts and always went there for the display. They had a carousel: a kid was injured one year so they eliminated that. My parents wedding photos were done by the swank lobby fountain in 1955.
I grew up near Calarts and always lived that display. There was a carousel for the kids until a year when a kid was injured. My parents had their wedding photos taken by the swank lobby fountain in 1955.
When we graduated from Reservoir Avenue Elementary School--6th Grade,we bought our beloved teacher, Miss Cunningham, a beautiful jewelry boxthere with sweet music when the top was lifted. Nice place,
