A neat old store was Blackstone on Belmont near Long Ave. Kind of hobby/craft store, you could buy anything you ever needed there. We would buy our model cars, paint and glue there. Model trains, race cars for the AFX tracks, felt, styrofoam for school projects, rubber balls, baseball cards, candy, enerything a 12 year old could want!! Not to mention the scented markers! Orange was the best.
