The Classics: An Interactive Pawn Shop
I know, probably not the best place to take a group of seventh graders, But it was broad day-light. And truthfully, I felt more comfortable there than waiting in the decrepit Greyhound bus stop.
Its name intrigued me: Welcome, The Classics.
It was memory lane for me. For my students, it was museum.
- A pay phone booth with pictures on the wall of 15 teenagers wedged inside.
- A roll-top desk… a typewriter and erasable paper.
- An eight-track tape boom box blasting ABBA, Chicago, Simon and Garfunkel, and John Denver.
“Wow, Pop. This is better than T-Rex at the Smithsonian!”
Written for Carrot Ranch Communications. (I don’t know if a place like this is “real”… but I would love to spend an afternoon there with a group of teens!)
