I don't know how many people remember this great store on Elmwood Ave in Buffalo. I first visited it in the late '80s. It was Buffalo's equivalent of the Peddler.
We were down in the Queen City yesterday and the store is up for sale and has been emptied. The owner Jennifer, saw us peering in and came out to talk to us (she was renovating inside). It closed in January 2007. She says after 30 years she's not sure what she's going to do. She's selling the building first.
It was a wonderful store and had so many things you couldn't get in Toronto.
A couple of years ago we visited the Continental too. That kinda looked on its last legs too. Shame.
