Howard Griffin Land O' Toys

Front of Shirt
Back of Shirt

I found a couple of shirts last week in a shop on Trenton Street, and they brought back a flood of memories. This one was probably the most meaningful to me. That TV jingle will pop into the head of most everyone who grew up in Monroe, including me! Howard Griffin on South Grand turned into a wonderland for kids every year around November through the Christmas holidays. Mr. Griffin first started the tradition in 1955 and it was a yearly occurrence all the way up until it’s final year in 1985. I think many of my generation shed tears when the building burned a few years ago. When I saw this shirt, I knew I had to have it!
