Everybody has a memory, you know, like the ones that make you tingle every time you hear a familiar love song on the radio, or see an action figure you cherished as a child, or smell the aroma of coffee brewing in a percolator. Those memories are tangible and powerful. Whether you were a child of the 30s when Roy Rogers was your hero, or a child of the 80s when the Red Power Ranger was your hero - we were all children once. Some of us will always remain children - even if only in our hearts! Whenever you venture into Antiques, Toys Collectibles & More, owned by Anna Tropea, those memories are renewed and relived in the most wonderful of ways.
