Hills Is Where The Toys Are



Christmas In Toyland coloring book
Hills Department Store
Someone recently shared this photo of a coloring book to the @HillsDeptStores page on Twitter.  I'm not sure what year the book is from, but the ad on the front for the coloring contest brought back some fond memories of the days when the chain would frequently offer perks to children who visited the store, like free pictures that you could color in and bring back for a chance to win a prize.

With this in mind, I headed to Newspapers.com and found each of the Christmas coloring contest pages that Hills offered from 1983 to 1989.  The bottom two are from my local store in West Hazleton.  Feel free to grab your Crayola, print off a few copies and enjoy!
