2013-0807-Orl-ColonialFiveDime-MtchbkHere’s one of the five and ten cents stores in Orlando fifty plus years ago. Not sure of the date of this matchbook but would guess about 1960. Please post any comments below if you have memories of going to Colonial 5 & 10¢ Store.

This one sat on the southwest corner of Mills Avenue (US 17 & 92) and East Colonial Drive (Hwy. 50) in a trip center that still stands today but with a very different set of stores with an asian theme. The only one that doesn’t is Ace Stamp & Sign at the western end of the strip that, i believe, has been there about fifty years.

This, as is 99,9% of what is found on this site is part of the Swampy’s Florida Florida collection.
