The Ideal Shop in Searcy AR 1978

Look at this picture and if you are from Searcy Arkansas it brings back many memories of the clothing store that was located downtown at 110 North Spring Street.  It was in business for many years and was loved.  This photo was in the advertisement section of the 1978 Harding yearbook.

And if you are not from Searcy, this picture will bring back fashion memories.  Look at the ladies outfits.  Waists were where the belts went, not dropped way below the waistline as seems to be popular now.  I'd like to know what brand they are holding up that has the same pattern on it.  If you know,  let us know.  I do not remember it at all.  The ladies almost look like ones I knew but I can't be certain.  See if you recognize them.

You remember who the owner was. I want to think there is a connection to Janet Crain and Julia Killough. I remember the cool arched ceiling and the display alcoves along wall

Ah yes, the fashions of the 1970s.  I remember them well - Polyester, bell bottoms, psychedelic designs and wild colors.

Dharla, the girl on the left looks like Janet but not enough for me to positively identify.  The one on the right looks like Clara Cargile but I can't tell about it either.

Myrl, I loved the polyester!
