Ann Arbor Christmas Shopping Guide


State Street
on the Campus
q ! " I,. tii - +
ll ~kl 'il

The familiar slogan, "Do your
Christmas shopping early and
avoid the rush" has special signifi-
cance to us as students at the
University. A final examination
period that lasts till December
18th does not leave much time
for a judicious selection of Christ-
mas presents. The prospect of ar-
riving home fresh from a trying
set of exams and then fighting the
crowds of last minute Christmas
shoppers is not very appealing.
The city of Ann Arbor offers a
number of fine shopping areas
which are reasonably accessible to
the average student. The closest
and probably most familiar areas
are the State Street area and the
South University area. Most of
the stores in these areas appeal
directly to the student market

and are always up on the latest
Also reasonably accessible are
the Downtown shopping area, cen-
tered on Main Street, and Arbor-
land Shopping Center, which is
bordered by Washtenaw Ave. and
U.S. 23. Main Street is five blocks
west of State Street, the Down-
town stores are concentrated on
it between Liberty and Huron. In
this area are such campus favor-
ites as Sam's Store.
Arborland, being right off of
Washtenaw Avenue, is easy to get
to by car. It is also serviced by
public buses; for information on
bus routes and schedules call City
Bus Co. of Ann Arbor, 663-2613.
Arborland has branches of a num-
ber of stores familiar to those who
live outside of Ann Arbor, espe-

cially natives of Detroit. Among,
these are: Hughes, Hatcher Suf-
frin; J. C. Penney's; Winkelman's;
Montgomery Wards; Hartman's;
and Three Sisters.
For those who have automobiles
at their disposal there are the
Westgate and Westland Shopping
Centers. Westgate is located on
West Stadium Boulevard near
Liberty and Westland is between
Ann Arbor and Detroit.
Almost everyone has established
some pattern of gift shopping, if
you haven't, here are some help-
ful suggestions.
The advertisements in this sup-
plement offer some ideas for
Christmas gifts. Represented is a
wide range of merchandise from
a number of different stores in

One of the oldest and probably
one of the best ways to do your
Christmas shopping is the tradi-
tional window shopping method.
Just take a walk through one of
the major shopping areas and ex-
amine the Christmas displays in
their windows. Even if you don't
find exactly what you are looking
for, it will get you started on the
right track and be a pleasurable
experience besides.
For those who want something
a little different to give for Christ-
mas there are a number of stores
in town specializing in unusual
and exotic gifts. Many of these
shops are located right in the
central campus area. Among them
are: the John Leidy shop; the
Crown House of Gifts; the Salt
Box Gift Shop; Maison Edward's;
Artisans; the India Art Shop;
ChesterRoberts; and Lenoy Im-
The conforming Christmas shop-
per will find the traditional
Christmas gifts still popular this
year. For the man in your life
there are such items as: sweaters,
ties, shirts, pens, etc. If you think
your boyfriend is being a little too
aggressive lately Playboy is push-
ing one, three, or five subscrip-
tions, on which he can work off
his frustrations. For the lady in
your life there are: charms, circle
pins, perfume, sweaters, etc. Or if
you want to be subtle, but sugges-
tive, there is always lingerie.
One reminder to those who are
planning to send gifts or cards
through the mail. The Post Office
has advised that Christmas mail
be posted by Dec. 10th to insure
delivery by Christmas Day, or if
you are mailing air mail the dead-
line is the 15th.
Careful Wrapping
Of Xmas Packages
Insures Delivery
The most important thing to
consider in mailing Christmas
gifts is preparing and addressing
the package.
The first step in mailing a
Christmas package is a check with
the local post office about size
regulations. At the same time, the
zip code of the address should be
cheecked and used.
The package should be carefully
wrapped in heavy paper and
twine. Be sure to mark it care-
fully if the contents are perish-
able or fragile. A letter may be
included if the necessary postage
is paid and the package is marked
as containing a letter.
Phone books may be misleading
about addresses. Merely because a
city is grouped under a general
heading in a telephone directory
does not mean it will be grouped
under the same heading by the
United States Post Office.
For example, many addresses in
the Ann Arbor phone book are not
included under the Ann Arbor post
office; they come under the juris-
diction of the post offices at Belle-
ville and Plymouth. All uncertain
addresses should be checked with
your local post office.
Missing packages should be
checked with the post office to
which they were addressed. Do not
consult your local post office. No
record is kept of packages sent
from there.
A last general rule about Christ-
mas packages: If in doubt, phone
your local post office. It is their
business to know how the mail is
run and they will be more than
happy to assist you with your
mailing problems. Checking with
the post office early means less
work for them and certain delivery
of your Christmas mail.





The holiday spirit is growing
more and more each day. Santa
has come down from the North
Pole and made his yearly pilgri-
mage down Fifth Avenue to visit
his biggest competition - Macy's
Toyland, a n d Shirley Temple
movies are pushing dolls and
Erector sets on T.V.
Now is the time to start sending
out those Holiday greetings and
wishes for a Happy New Year. The
Ann Arbor card and gift shops are
brimming over with ever conceiv-
able type of greeting and wish,
from Santa wishing you a Happy
Hanakah to a beautiful Currier
and Ives painting reflecting the
serenity and peace that accom-
panies this time of the year..
The Post Office will soon be
barking cries of mail your Christ-

mas greetings now to be sure of
Christmas delivery, and that card
you liked so much yesterday will
be gone, so whether you buy them
by the box, or spend 14 hours
selecting just the right card for
the right person, run, and join the
crowd of people who are tired of
studying for finals, and have not
much else to do than get their
finger-prints all over the con-
temporary cards or just come in
from the cold.
Regular Mail Dec. 10;
Air Mail Dec. 15


THE SMART CARD SHOPPER will get busy soon while there is
still a good selection of greeting cards available. For those who
wait card shopping may be a good study break diversion during
final exams.
