I bought this shirt for my dad. Literally every time we would go down to state street when we were kids, and even to this day, he talks about the Moon Fun Shop. When I saw the shirt, I knew I had to get it for him. He loves it!
From the 1960s to the 1980s, the Moon Fun Shop was Madison’s source for joy buzzers, dribble glasses and whoopee cushions. Besides its gag gifts, Moon Fun was also a poster shop, a lava lamp shop and, yes, a head shop famed for its smoking paraphernalia. The Moon Fun Shop may have been a little edgy, but Madison kids loved it.
What a find! I hope they continue to showcase places we remember that have gone to the other side. We need to remember these places! Who will recall Walmart or Charter fondly? No one.
Nice heavyweight t-shirt and I love the memories the Moon Fun Shop logo brings back.
Love the shirt ~ can't wait to wear it proudly. There will be many in the City of Madison, WI who will recognize it immediately. I spent many hours, in that store, and lots of my hard earned teenage dollars. . . . . wish it were still around. I also bought one for my daughter. The shirts are good quality material and well made. I too like the touch of the "wooden nickel" tag.
I loved Moon Fun Shop as a kid - the joy buzzers, the magic tricks, the lava lamps - and was thrilled to get my Moon Fun Shop t-shirt in the mail. It's a great quality shirt. The distressed design is both attractive and nostalgic at the same time. Loved the little "wooden nickel" tag that came with it. Very happy with my purchase.
