  • Steve Presser in an outfit "from Afghanistan," created by artist Debbie Apple-Presser, his wife.

  • Gotcha! Presser had this plaque custom-made by a local monument maker. 

  • "It's been a vessel," said Presser of his store. "A place where people can make themselves feel better."

  • Presser's passion for collectibles has combined with his wit and inclusivity as the recipe for Big Fun's brokerage of pure and lasting joy.

  • While the store will close in a few months, Presser has made clear that this is not a retirement for him. There will be other work and community projects for years to come.
