Goldberg's was MY favorite store with their very well-stocked "TOYLAND." In one of the many Christmas columns I have written over the past 25-plus years, the one I recall most vividly was detailing a trip to "Downtown Trenton" during the Christmas season. As a boy of r or 6, I remember asking my mother why Santa's beard moved when he talked, but his lips stayed in place. Ahh, the innocence of childhood!
HI TOM.... GOLDBERG'S BARGIN BASEMENT WAS OUR FAVORITE PLACE. I DO'NT THINK WE BOUGHT ANYTHING UPSTAIRS UNTIL THE LATE 30'S. WE ALSO PATRONIZED GIMBEL'S NEXT DOOR AND WHEN WE WANTED SOMETHING SPECIAL WE WENT TO SWERN'S, WHICH WAS RIGHT DOWN THE STREET AND SOLD MOSTLY BETTER PRODUCTS. DOWNTOWN TRENTON IN THOSE DAYS WAS LIKE VISITING SOMETHING SPECIAL AND WE ALWAYS ENJOYED IT, REGARDS.
