I was going to ask if it was VanDyke Pool and Toy.
Used to stop in there as well from time to time during my ventures down to Prop Shop Hobbies.
I never got any lucky finds like you did however.
It's been a couple months since I went to Prop Shop Hobbies.
I think I'll stop in there today and extend my lunch hour.
I need another can of Brodak Dope thinner anyway.

Yep, one of my prized possessions: a sealed diamond pack of D12-5's. Since I started in rocketry in the early seventies, it is a sight that always brings a smile to my face.

That, an orange Porta-Pad II and a KC-1 Quasar

The KC-1 Quasar was my first rocket in 1977
