After 30 years in business, Lexington has said farewell to one of the original gift shops on Huron Street. Bob Hobbs has retired and closed his shop. There are so many memories I have of shopping and visiting with Bob from the early age of 9, I fondly remember Saturday mornings with my friends in grade school rushing in to Bob's store with anticipation for some of the coolest stickers we could collect. Many people have purchased some of the most beautiful wreaths and centerpieces I've ever seen from Bob. He is a talented and stylish retailer and we will sincerely miss him. I know I will miss him sitting on the bench patroling the shopping scene...the benches of Lexington will never be the same.
We welcome anyone to leave their thoughts, stories and memories of Bob Hobbs' store here on the blog!
