Over the weekend I was looking for something fun to do around town, when I remembered this amazing little store I had often visited with my parents when I was young. It’s name is Adam Miller Toy and Bicycle, and it sells just what its name describes. The store boasts tons and tons of top-of-the-line bicycles, and lots of adorable retro toys! What really hooked me, were the the retro toys! Founded in 1946, it prides itself on being “The Neatest Store in Town.”
When I walked in the front door I was immediately greeted by a gorgeous bicycle built for two, that is available for rent. Now wouldn’t that make for a truly unique family-fun activity? I should convince my husband to peddle it around town with me!
There were walls and walls of board games and puzzles, paper dolls, and model airplanes, you really can’t digest everything in just one visit. They even have a decorative Rubik’s Cube hanging from the ceiling!
The store began it’s life almost 70 years ago as strictly a bike shop, and its roots remain strong. They still offer the best bicycle repair in town, and the back contains practically a legion of bikes!! Just look at this!
What really caught my eye, was this cute little clapping monkey, because it reminded me of my favorite musical The Phantom of the Opera. Isn’t he adorable?
I must have wandered around this store in a daze for a good hour, just soaking it all in. If you’re in town I highly recommend stopping by this vibrant, living museum. My husband got a nifty bouncy ball out of the experience, so he was happy.
