It amazes me that Grey Owl is still around. When I was a Scout my troop had
an Indian Lore group that my brothers and I belonged to. My father use to
take us over to Grey Owl to get our supplies. Until recently, I never knew
that they were mainly a mail order shop.
I loved my families excursions to Grey Owl. The store had so many
interesting items for a young boy to mull over. It was always a treat to go
there. I do not know if the store is still open or if they are only a mail
order firm now, but if the store is still open, I suggest to anyone in the
Greater NY area who has an interest (or a son with an interest) in Native
American items to take a trek to it.
