It's baaaaaack... After a few weeks' lapse, I went into the files to scan more commercial photos we have from the tax assessor's office. In honor of the final days of Christmas shopping, I bring you Edina Card & Gift Shop at 50th and France.
Or more specifically, the store was located at 5004 France Avenue South, according to the ad in the 1960 phone directory.
I have to say the ad for L'Unique, a women's clothing store next door, was more... unique.
The shops are gone, the businesses as well as their buildings. This area of France Avenue is now the new building that houses Sur La Table (if the old addresses are the same as the new ones.)
Can anyone tell me more about these two businesses? The "rental library" (listed on the card shop sign) particularly intrigues me. What did the store rent? Certainly not cards or gifts. As always, feel free to comment here or email me.
Happy shopping, everyone!
