It was 1962 when The Afternoon opened it’s doors as a local gallery… only open in the afternoon. Then, in 1969 the shop opened in the mall as a gift shop. They moved to their current location at Midtown Crossing 8 years ago.
The store is now 55 years old and better than ever. The current owner is 82 years old and still travels to gift shows to select product for the store. You can find a large selection of unique gifts for yourself or your friends. They also have a section of unique kitchen gadgets plus fun greeting cards.
I talked with the current manager, Jen. She said that they still have customers that come visit who remember the original store. Spend an afternoon or evening browsing the fun collection at The Afternoon.
