I graduated from Poly in January of 1956. Could not wait to get a job! I was eager to begin making money so I could purchase cashmere sweaters!! One store in Stonestown allowed me to lay away purchases that I would pick up when I had the money. At $42 clear a week, you can imagine how long that took. The store was called Mademoiselle. Not sure if this spelled correctly. After this, it was mandatory to shop at Joseph Magnin. Still have my credit card. Trips to Stonestown were every Friday evening!! Very fund memories!
