- THE FUN CORNER HAS CLOSED IT"S DOORS AFTER BEING OPEN FOR 60 YEARS on NOV 27th -

Our family has been honored and proud to be your theatrical supplier for the past 60 years.

Bud and Gene Shadegg started the dream and we continued it when we purchased the Fun Corner in 1984.

To say we will miss it is a very big understatement, but we know that it's time we look forward to our new retirement adventures.

The Fun Corner actually started out in the middle of the block in 1956. Then moved to the corner and in 1980 moved back to the middle of the block. When it was on the corner of Base Line & "D", the Fun Corner was actually in four individual buildings. When we moved back to the middle (our present location), we were in half of the our current building. Costume Rental was in the other half. Costume Rental had originally been part of the Fun Corner, but the Shadeggs sold it to Elizabeth in the early 80's. After we bought the Fun Corner in 1984, Elizabeth moved Costume Rental into the building next door. We then renovated our building and expanded to both sides. As a side note, Costume Rental burned down about 10 years ago. We now officially are located at 424-426 W. Base Line, even though we just list our address as 426 W. Base Line.
