I love these stories – thanks to Kim for sending:

“Popped into Lee’s today and found these jewels amid their construction. According to the employees, while the shop has been around since 1945, the building was first a burlesque theater and then a tailor shop. The burlesque theater was discovered during the current construction. They believe the Coca-Cola ad and the tin ceiling date back to the theater. Lee’s is a special place; big congrats on their forthcoming renovation!”

    I’m so glad that local, independent businesses like this are able to stick around amidst the bland chains that seem to be taking over the neighborhood.
