Feelin' Groovy

XMAS 9937

While we were up in Pittsburgh last month, Missy's brother Joe took us out to GROOVY, the self-proclaimed "POP CULTURE EMPORIUM". I'm happy to say that they truly lived up to their reputation...

The store was filled from floor to ceiling with mostly VINTAGE GAMES AND was like unearthing a giant TIME CAPSULE. Everywhere we looked we were blown away...where else can you find BEETLEJUICE, ED GRIMLEY, ERKEL, and PEE WEE HERMAN co-existing in perfect harmony?

In the back of the store they had plastic KIDDIE POOLS filed with BEANIE BABIES...are they still worth anything anymore?

SHOGUN WARRIORS! I used to have the red one when I was a kid. I sold it when I needed extra cash to move from California to Georgia back in 2005:

They even had a throwback MS. PAC-MAN arcade console for sale:

Believe it or not, I'm old enough to remember GABE KAPLAN and the TV show "WELCOME BACK, KOTTER"...

...and I used to have this MORK doll!
