You might get a better response if you post this in the GBNF thread. They are pretty hard-core in there. I can't keep up!

It was a touch before my time, but I remember it being a "head" shop and concert ticket outlet.

I used to LOVE going there as a teen. There were all these fun things for kids/teens. I really miss that shop. I think it went away in the late 80's.
It was in the Sunset Ridge Shopping Center. Miss it.

Default Jam & Jelly

I worked at J&J for a year while I was in college. It was a great store, with everything from dishes to greeting cards (some a little off-color) to gifts. It wasn't a head shop by any means, just a cool, funky, groovy kind of store. We also sold concert tickets because the owner's husband was a concert promoter. Nancy used to bring her pet skunk to work (Ladybug). She also had a lot of exotic birds.

At Christmas time we used to have "ho ho" time, i.e., opened a bottle of wine at 5:00 before closing at 6. So much fun, so many memories!

I remember that place. Something along the lines of Truckers General Store.
