Default 2nd version of True's

For those of us who go waaayyyyyy back, True's was strictly a gift shop. The sportwear, sneakers, etc. came in the 2nd incarnation. I remember going to True's in the early 60's and starting my china animal collection. They had a large table with raised glass sides and the inside was filled with the softest, powdery white sand. In the sand stood all kinds of china animals. I still have my collection. Most of the animals stood 1 or 2 inches tall and they usually were grouped as families of sheep, ducks, horses, etc. Each room contained different styles of gifts. It sort of reminded me of the gift shop side of Black's in Wolfeboro only 3 or 4 times bigger.
