Bresee's Revisited

Plastic bookmark from Bresee's Department Store in Oneonta, NY. I've mentioned Bresee's before here on the blog.

Found in "This Side of Paradise" by F. Scott Fitzgerald. Published by Scribners, copyright states 1948 (this is a later printing, circa 1965 or so).

  1. Hi: From 1968 to 1979 I lived in Norwich and then Gilbertsville. Bresees was THE department store destination for anything special - nice clothes, yarn for knitting, etc. It was definitely an Otsego County/Oneonta landmark. And then it, sadly like most small town dept stores, closed in the era of big box stores. Thanks for bringing back the memory of a special store, Kathy
