Talk:Lion & Unicorn

I know one of the two major newspapers did a story on Lion & Unicorn and Allen Hammack when the store first opened. If someone finds it, I'd be grateful to get a copy. Also, I found mention of a Lion & Unicorn location at 7001 Crestwood Blvd., but I know nothing about that one. From the Usenet message, it's possible there were other locations I was never aware of. --Lkseitz 23:08, 13 July 2006 (PDT)

  • When I moved to Center Point in 1995, there was a L&U in the Bruno's Shopping Center on Center Point Parkway. It closed not too long after that. It had a lot of space and hosted RPG's. I was an old AD&D fanatic in HS and college, and while I never played there, I did run into old friends. They also did "Magic the Gathering" card game tournaments there. --Wheresdib 05:20, 15 April 2008 (PDT)

Pickwick Place move

I was gathering up my old copies of Comic Shop News to sell on eBay. I used to get these at Lion & Unicorn and they usually stamped them. The last one stamped "1915 11th Avenue South" is #163 (August 9, 1990). The first one stamped "2012 Magnolia Avenue/Pickwick Place" is #170 (September 26, 1990). So they must have moved sometime in between those two dates. I should mention that I only have one issue between those, #164, which is not stamped at all (and might possibly have come from a shop in Huntsville). --Lkseitz 21:06, 14 April 2008 (PDT)
