Spotting an old Woolworth store!

Several years ago, as I was heading home from the beach, I passed what was clearly an old Woolworth storefront. It had the telltale red front with art deco touches at the edges-as well as the enormous plate glass windows lining the entire front. I vaguely remembered that it had been turned into some sort of antique mall.

This week, it popped into my head and since i was already down in Spring Lake, I sought out to find it. It resides in Point Pleasant and is practically untouched. Still has the W monogram on the entry tiles and those endlessly long fluorescent bulbs hanging from the tin ceilings. What a great space! It was also fun to poke around in the store to see products that were probably sold as  "new" from that era. So fun! 

Found words...

I'm always looking at old ephemera and collect things like ledgers, photos and odd items like bingo cards, cigar store coupons and vintage popcorn bags. I was flipping through an old autograph book from the 40s and found this quote. Had to letter it. :)
