Willy Street

Russian stacking dolls for the Wisconsin crowd.
You can have the old Packers (with Bart Starr) or the new (Favre).
On display at Escape.

The Apostle Andrew Book Store stands shoulder-to-shoulder with Grampa's Gun Shop.
If it might seem incongruous any other place,
their conjunction is perfectly suited to Willy Street.

I followed My Darling B into the Ace Hardware store on Williamson Street today,
and felt as though I'd stepped out of the way back machine into a store from when I was a kid
-- from the low tin ceiling to the shelves chockablock with everything you could ever need
down to the worn hardwood floors!
I didn't know stores like this still existed.
