Reader Looking for a Name
Got an email from a reader who was a student at SIUC in the 70's asking for the name of a small shop that carried "spacey, hippy style stuff", including clothes and smoking paraphenalia. It was located near the corner of West College & S. Illinois and was in business during the 70s, closing during the 80s. I remember one located where Shokokan Karate is now, but it was open through the early 90's, closing when the city council started strictly enforcing the ordinance against shops selling smoking paraphernalia (three stores closed within a week after the enforcement started).
