Finders Keepers 15

10 March 2016 , ,

I don't think the threads are real silver, but they are certainly metallic.
Now here’s a little piece of Canadiana. This bookmark was made to celebrate the 25th anniversary of the Winnipeg outlet of one of Canada’s two most famous department stores, the Timothy Eaton Company. Eaton’s was a pioneer in the Canadian catalogue sales industry. My Dad used to tell me how his winter boots would be ordered from them when he was a boy (during this first 25 years, too!). They never fit properly and his pinched feet were still cold as a result. This Winnipeg store was probably the closest to his home in Maryfield, Saskatchewan, and the base for the catalogue operations. I shopped there, too, from time to time, right up to the Canadian retail giant’s closure in 1999. The Eaton’s building was torn down to accommodate the building of the MTS Centre.
