perhaps our best press has come from you...

we love to hear that people have heard about us

from their friends, and cousins, and co-workers...

their moms, and neighbors, and favorite uncle...

their doctor, other store owners, their barber...


and then there’s bozo, and howdy doody, and gumby and popeye

and our 6 foot sock monkey

who take turns hanging-out in front of our store

inviting passersby to stop in...


to all, we say “thank you”...

thank you for liking us enough to tell someone else

we always feel so honored when students of all ages ask to interview us for their school projects
