IT WAS SO COLD outside
FORMER DETROITERS of
that in rural areas, farmers were
milking their cows with ice picks.
But it didn't stop crowds of
diehards who wanted to see just
what the first "Lifestyle '85" by
A.J. Foland's was all about .. .
The three-day exhibit at South-
field's Civic Center pavilion
showed oodles and oodles of stuff
. . . all Foland's merchandise .. .
from beard trimmers to high-style
glassware to kitchen appliances
etcetera so many times . . . but
nothing could be bought . . . This
is probably the first exhibition of
its type in the country where
somebody didn't try to hustle you
into buying an electric toothpick
A.J. Foland's is owned by Judy
and Jerry Kroot . .,. She is the
daughter of former Detroiters
Ruth and Larry Reich, now Flori-
dians (Reich & Alpert, Adler-
Reiss) . . . Jerry's parents were the
late Pearl and Max Kroot .. .
They now have six stores (top one
is in Livonia) . . . with 400 em-
ployees . . . and a bridal registry
among the biggest of them all .. .
Their jewelry department is sec-
ond only to Meyer.
Lifestyle '85 was put together in
less than a year by Judy, Jerry
and their eight buyers . People
didn't know it, but merchandise
that had "New & Exciting" tage
on them weren't even on the mar-
Something went on Friday,
Saturday and Sunday . . . The lat-

. . . and a very popular aisle with
samples from the cooking of Jack
McCarthy from restaurant by
same name, using Hobart ... Tom
McKinnon of McKinnon's using
Hamilton Beach . . . Helen Dowl-
ing of Sheraton-Oaks doing her
pastry magic on Sunbeam . . . plus
so many others.
Free seminars ranged from
Michigan Humane Society to
choosing crystal, diamonds, flat-
ware or telephones to decorating
bathrooms right on down to man-
Only thing needed for admis-
sion was finding a place to park . .
and a thawed-out smile.
MAXIE SILK, and Father
Russ Kohler, co-chaplain at Sinai
Hospital, are searching for the
lady who talked to Maxie about
her 15-year-old ill daughter .. .
regarding taking the young lass
on their April trip to Israel .. .
Maxie and Father Kohler have
made room for her . . . but no way
of getting in touch with the
mother . . . The girl is an out-
patient at Children's Hospital .. .
Call Maxie, 961-7968.
LEONARD SIEGAL, local ar-
chitect, gives any one of three rea-
sons for his being on crutches . . .
1. Sudden landing while skydiv
ing . . . 2. Talking back to wife
Bluma . . . 3. Break dancing .. .
Real culprit was sports injury.
