OF INTEREST: Part 2: The REAL Rike’s Window Display Elves

After lunch I retraced my steps through the Schuster Center lobby and the “stages” or boxes were being dismantled.

Here are two of those beloved elves:

What we see at The Schuster Center each year is not the complete Rike’s set.

  • The department store’s window displays changed each year
  • There were quite a few more windows around the entire department store
  • The displays are currently stored in the Schuster’s basement
  • People from around the Miami Valley continue to donate pieces of the Rike’s window displays each year – some interesting acquisition stories

The Schuster Center is in the process of raising funding to create new display structures and will be holding a fundraising campaign this summer.

I am interested in learning more and can hopefully keep post more as I go.
