    Jim's Party Store Tee Shirts! Man-o-man...have not thought about those beautiful shirts in decades! They were the go-to fashion item for the casual/cool teen in the '70's. Can you replicate and sell them on-line Jim? Anyone able to post one of those on this site?

    I remember Jim's. Loved going in there. What a great store that was. Funny seeing that picture of Lancer"s Wine. Never found much wine that I liked but Lancer's Vin Rose in those ceramic type bottles was really good. Across the street from Jim's there was a Chinese restaurant that we liked, and the Saki was good too.

Jim's Party Store lives

Jim's lives on. View from Trent, December 24, 2014.

As of 2014, this building was under renovation to house a new (second) location of "Cocoa Cinnamon," a café that started on the northeast corner of W. Geer and Foster Streets.
