Mom would browse around the fabric department of the Dime stores, or look at the pretty nick nacks they had. Steve & I would head for the toy department on the lower level.
I loved paper dolls!
I think I may have liked cutting out all of the clothes & accessories more than I like playing with them. More often than not, I would talk Mom into buying me a new book of paper dolls that would keep me content until our next trip.
Just off of Broadway we found a nice group of little shops.
Carol just loves for me to drag out my camera!
All of the old stores are gone now,replaced by shops that probably cater to the University crowd that lives a few streets from downtown. Several old store fronts had been converted into cafes, tea rooms & restaurants. We could tell that when night time would come, this street would probably be alive with the young MU crowd.
