Dollhouse kits, wallpaper, flooring, tile, electric kits, furniture, families, everything for the dollhouse was closed, so I just took the picture of the window.

What to buy: On the other hand, Annie's was open, so we went in and browsed, but I didn't buy anything. Annie's has a web page where you can shop by internet if you want to.
This place was closed when we walked past it. Apparently one of the tennants is The Black Dog Gallery
A Cocoa paper for Jan-Feb 2002 says:
"Quentin Walter won Best of Show at the 2nd Annual Sebastian Riverfront Fine Art and Music Festival. Quentin is a Neo Color Expressionist Painter and she has several pieces now on Exhibit at The Black Dog Gallery in the Threadneedle Street Mall"
The address and phone number is for The Black Dog Gallery.
This store includes not only the store which has the name on it, but the whole next building. It's one of the oldest (or IS the oldest) business in Cocoa - dating from 1885 which is 10 years before Cocoa was a town. It is now a True Value hardware store.
We looked in the windows and they have a fantastic displays and it looks as if you could buy anything you wanted to buy. It has 35,000 square ft.
What to buy: The building on the right is Masonry Vernacular style (characterized by flat parapet roofs, decorative brick work, belt courses, and name and date panels) and was added in 1907.
The building on the left was extensively renovated in1926 including the enlargement of display windows, removal of the transom which had run over the windows and door, and the addition of a stucco covering.
What to pay: Unfortunately we didn't walk that direction on Saturday, and it was closed on Sunday. Bob refused to run over there and look at it on Monday before we left because 'he didn't need anything'.
