  1. I would like to know if your museum or any of your followers (that may be interested in collecting old items that represent history) would like to purchase a very old 1870 wood ruler that represents Goldsmith's 71st Anniversary Sale? You can e-mail me at joynerno@aol.com if interested.

    Thanks

  2. Our family was told that our grandmother was the first African American female sales woman for Cain Sloan, her name was Julia Allen. Can anyone verify this for, we would like to know if this is true.

  3. I grew-up shopping at Goldsmith's. It was to Memphis what Marshall Field's was to Chicago -- an icon. My first job was in Gift Wrap, at the Oak Court location, during the holidays. My prom dress came from the Southland Mall location. Wow. Truly great memories. Goldsmith's was the best of the best! Now, ironically, my son works for Macy's -- a Fortune 500 Company. Obviously, good taste passes from one generation to the next!
