Treasure Island Closing  
Treasure Island... a most unusual store that's no more.

This weekend, on our way to join FrenchToastGirl to see Christine Lavin's concert in Westfield (Coffee with Conscience series). Miz Lavin and her opening act David Ippolito were fantastic. Definitely good ambassadors of good folk music (you know, upbeat, funny, topical songs that you can understand). As a prefinale (her finale was twirling batons with glowsticks on the end to Sousa), she sang a song about French Toast Bread Pudding... you can guess who was very excited about that!

Anyways... back to Treasure Island. We were on Rt. 22 when I noticed that the No. Plfd. store's parking lot was full which is weird a few weeks after the after-Christmas sales. And then we noticed the big canvas sign strung up... "Store Closing" According to The Herald News, the WHOLE CHAIN is going out of business by the end of March. Yet another holder of childhood memories biting the dust :(
