2015-05-28 21:49:15   I LOVED this store as a child. Was pretty sad when it closed in late 1996 or early 1997—I can't remember but the last time I remember going there was in the summer of 96 when I was 7. I usually loved going there to get balloons. And Brio trains which I still have. My parents bought me a really big bouquet of balloons from there for my 5th birthday. Years after it closed I went in there when someone else had a store there, and it was just the way I remembered it. If anybody has more info, add it to the above entry. Saw an old newspaper clipping online that has a Halloween ad, circa 1992.
