A Woman’s Touch

08 March, 2013

Of course anytime you increase your floor space you need to have merchandise to fill it up. My mother and her team of ladies worked hard to look for unique novelties, paper products, costumes and decorations to put in stock. Suddenly we were stocking masks of every sort, bridal and baby shower trinkets, cake toppers, novelties for school carnivals, costumes, wigs, tickets, paper tableware and on and on. My mother brought to life another whole side of the Cromer’s experience. At a time when there were no big box stores and no internet, Cromer’s was the place to come if you needed most anything for a party, carnival or any event. The phrase got to be “if you can’t find it at Cromer’s, you can’t find it!”
