  1. I think your great for having this blog adn show how the retail scope has changed in Charlotte. Can you do put pictures of the old "Montaldos". It was such an elegant place in the 1950's. Now its the mint museum.

  2. Oprah seems way too excited about Belkie.

    I love it.

  3. cantnot: What can I say? I tip my hat to Oprah. :-)

    Anonymous: LiveMalls didn't really start out as a Charlotte history site, but it's evolved into one in a way. I don't have any Montaldo's pictures though.

    Anita: Oprah can get enthusiastic about anything :-)

  4. It's very '80s, to be sure. I miss those clothes ;-)
