Bill, Billy, Will Jones, our premier memoirist, searched his memory bank and was able to withdraw another new/old Maplewood tale just in time for Christmas. I hope you enjoy his:
1939 Christmas at Harper’s Drugs
In November, Alice Harper taught me to gift wrap our large display of “Evening in Paris” perfume and cologne products. She insisted perfection in the results and we first did about a half-dozen “dummy displays” using empty boxes from the pharmacy but really beautiful gift “samples” for display. The “For My One and Only” combination looked beautiful. Our doctor from upstairs came down and carefully examined each Evening in Paris” selection. He picked out the most expensive set marked to “My One and Only”.
