There must be a polyester cape factory somewhere in Dayton.

Don't know about capes, but pretty sure you can get pants like that at Trivets in Cincinnati.

How could it remain so long as such a perfect time capsule and then close? Glad I got to experience it is all its cat pee smelling glory!

The owner died in 2001.
His long time girlfriend and his brother, who both worked there, battled in court over the estate.
2 years later a new store opened in the Norwood area.
Then closed not much longer after that for good.
I don't know where the goodies are.
Maybe they all went on ebay.

I guess we left Cincinnati at the right time. So sad.
