Cameron's Toys

Do you remember the Country Boys Market with its wooden floors? Walter Smiths was the place to go for clothes on the Fulton Mall. Penny Candy had great blacklight posters and don't forget Whitie's Pet Store on Blackstone. What vintage retail do you remember growing up in Fresno?

Cameron's Toys

Does anyone remember a place called Cameron's Toys? I remember a reference from an old local TV commercial that also mentioned Arthur's, but I never knew where Cameron's was.

I actually found an old ad and photo of this place. I guess it was downtown. I have no idea when it opened or closed, though.

I think Cameron Toys was just west of the Bank of America on Tulare Street. I recall going in there in the late 60's. The place looked tired.

You're right. Cameron Toy store was located just west of the old B of A building. I remember the interior being tired as well with chipped paint on the walls.

My Grandmother had an insurance business in Fresno originally called Drenth and Drenth. As a child in the 1959's &'60's we traveled to Fresno most summers. If we were good, we got to pick a toy. I still have my Matchbox by Lesney Foden 8-axle Sugar Container truck, with $0.49 Cameron's price tag. Don"t see a way to post a picture.
