“Big Fun will have the usual great holiday gifts that the award-wining store is known for,” Presser promises. “Ghoulardi and Cleveland souvenirs, including mugs, t- shirts, books, etc. are the perfect gift for the local fan. An amazing selection of books, most of which are more than half off, will be offered. Christmas stocking stuffers for people of all ages. It is nice to be in the old neighborhood again.”
The former location is filled with an eclectic selection of unique holiday gifts. Items include holiday goods, Cleveland-themed items, art books, adult coloring books, vintage t-shirts, hundreds of LEGO items, a collection of more than 6,000 miniature VW Beetles and Minibuses, and items from City Buddha and Blaze Gourmet.
The pop-up shop is highlighted by two new and very special collections that Presser is displaying for the very first time.
“I got a call from a friend who wanted to know if I could help a close friend of hers liquidate a toy collection of her friend's father, who sadly passed away,” Presser reveals. “Well, it was actually two collections that the father had a passion for. One was over 100 complete Lego buildings and a ton of accessories. The other was his real love—Volkswagen Beetle Bugs. The collection is over 6,000 individual VW bugs, beetles, vans, campers, etc. These two wonderful collections will be featured at the Clifton store and will be for sale.”
Additionally, the walls above the retail shelves are filled with a special retrospective of acclaimed local artist Dana Depew’s artwork. Looking Up to Dana Depew opens with a special reception this Thursday, Dec. 10 from 6 to 9PM. Most of Depew’s work in the shop is priced at $100 or less, and is available for sale in the shop before Thursday’s reception.
The pop-up Big Fun holiday shop is open Monday through Saturday from 11AM to 8PM. and 11AM to 1PM on Sunday. Thursday evening’s reception is free and open to the public.
