My father was an associate of Winnipeg's The T. EATON Co. Limited main store in the 1970's Western Divisional Advertising Department. Only a few advertising personalMy father was an associate of Winnipeg's The T. EATON Co. Limited main store in the 1970's Western Divisional Advertising Department. Only a few advertising personal are around today. Our family have also been part of the Eaton's family (1930's) prior to my father becoming employed, you can say he is a true blooded "Eatonian" even though I'm told Royal blood runs in our veins, but that is another story. My father started to collect key vintage historical artifacts and print advertising items from The T. EATON Co. Limited when the Winnipeg Store was closed in 1999, and then to his disbelief the store in 2001 was demolished one floor at a time and gone forever. We're continuing in building EATON'S one item at a time. Giving back to the community through showcasing of this unique collection, thus maintaining the integrity and legacy of the T. EATON Co Limited. This collection is dedicated to the memory of every person who had shopped and who had worked with this great Canadian company.

  16. Hello valentino97, The head fashion photographer had to chuckle because why all the fuss in the 1970's, me on the other hand was young and had no idea why the fuss. In my owning an ad agency later o...
  17. Hello antiquerose, Thank you for bringing this to my attention, darn spell check. Made all the corrections and still collecting Pumpkinhead "Punkinhead" items. Have checked out your lamp... very cool...
  18. Hello racer4four, Actually, funny that you mention this... no ingredients are even on the label! Times have changed and all the ingredients must now be on every label, even here in Canada with Frenc...
  19. Hello DonnygEatonian, I have collected only a few key Eaton's catalogues. I do have people asking if I want them but, they are more current 1960-70's. I will keep my eyes open for the 1920 and post it.
  20. Hello antiquerose, Sure did, just have not been able to reply, busy doing Eaton's research and my Museum. The advertising sure has been interesting, the fact some were actually printed by my father w...
  21. Hello blunderbuss2, It's amazing that after all these years this particular butter churn can be used. The high quality construction is so well done, it stood the test of time. I have seen others that...
  22. Hello pw-collector, I believe this is a Gallet watch, of course it doesn't mention on the ad in the 1923 Eaton's catalogue. Thank you for the website link, it did show this actual watch as well in th...
  23. Hello DonnygEatonian's, I will keep an eye out for (image) of this particular 1920 Spring and Summer Catalogue.
  24. Hi Gillian, Thank you. When starting the work on this sign had no idea of the results. Time worth spent, thus further maintaining the history of Eaton's.
  25. Hello Gillian, You have this right. The T. Eaton Company was on James North in Hamilton, Ontario.
  26. Hello Coopergirl, They are pretty heavy, but worth carrying them; a piece of history to showcase to everyone. I remember eating many times in the Grill Room 5th floor when I was employed by Eaton's,...
  27. Great Picture! Could've been used for marketing for EATON'S, happy satisfied customer and family related at well. Quality clothing and stylish; of course only from a great Canadian store.

  29. Funny you should mention mail order Eaton homes. I am looking at an Eaton house currently for the development of my Eaton's museum.
  30. Interesting that I am working on same T. EATON Co scale. Mine is 60 years old, T14, 12752, indicating that you have an older one. Great job on the restoration.
