“Ingleside Shopping Center” 2003
oil on board (40” x 30”)
Another memory about this brick shopping center was the Woolworth’s Ten Cent Store as we called it. I could buy a wide assortment of things for under a quarter. One time I bought a mermaid for my fish tank and more often I brought home a colorful slab of modeling clay which sold for 19 cents. Spending my allowance in Woolworth’s was a good way to pass the time while my mother was standing in line at the Giant getting her Top Value stamps at the check-out.
|The precious Top Value Stamps were saved and redeemed by housewives for an assortment of domestic items.|
