This shop was the place where dreams were made. This place was on the corner of Fourth Avenue (NW corner) and The Pike. The name of the shop was Palumbo's.
Palumbo's was a wedding gown/prom gown shop. And the window dressing was something from which the dreams were made.
My sister and I both recall how we would wait for the window to change clothes (new gowns put on display).
When I married my bridesmaids' dresses came from that shop. We went in to choose them and took our time.
My gown didn't come from there, though. After all those years of dreaming about getting a gown at Palumbo's, I didn't. I found one that was less expensive and just as pretty at Penney's.
But I remember riding my bike down to just look at the window and when I was riding a bus home from work, I'd take a peek at the window to see if they had changed the contents. Always a treat when the dresses were changed.
Prom season was another time when the window would change, and then after prom season was bride season, then came homecoming season, then Christmas, then it went round again. Always changing, always dreaming.
