Phantom of the Attic Moves to Downtown Easton

by Ken Newquist / November 21, 2007

Phantom of the Attic, my friendly neighborhood gaming/comic book store moved to downtown Easton, Pa. this week. The store's located at 125-129 Third Street, one block east from the Route 22 4th Street exit. The new location is great -- it's got beautiful hard wood floors, expansive amounts of space, and the Silver Surfer flying in one of the two display windows.

The shop moved from the 25th Street Shopping Plaza location, which wasn't nearly as nice as this one. A couple of my friends have remarked that parking might be an issue downtown, but in my experience it's a heck of a lot easier to navigate and find a spot in downtown Easton then it is having to run the automobile gauntlet that is 25th Street during rush hour (or any hour for that matter).

The store's still in flux, but the comics are racked and things appear to be coming together nicely. There's a prime gaming space in the back. so prime that I'd even consider having my group meet down there once in a while.

It's that nice. Or has the potential to be. I'm also thinking of volunteering to run a Savage Worlds one shot at the store in December, once NaNoWriMo is behind me and normality returns to the Newquist household. I've been itching to get in a game of SW; this would be a good way to do it.

Anyway, if you're in the Lehgih Valley (and I know a number of you are) stop by, check out the store, and buy something. This is the only truly geeky shop we have in Easton; we should make an extra effort to support it.

This is probably a random, weird question on an old post, but you wouldn't happen to know Phantom of the Attic's new phone number, would you? I'd like to check out the store, but the old one seems to be disconnected.

sorry for the confusion, thanks for patience. new number for the store is.
610-252-8902

thanks again,
tony

obviously old... but i can never find the store.. cause i hate downtown... lol
i miss it!!!!!!!!!!

It's easy to find downtown -- just get off the 4th street exit from 22, then turn right on to 3rd street. It'll be three or four storefronts down 3rd street, on your left hand side -- look for the storefront with a Silver Surfer and a bunch of comic posters in the window. :)

I haven't had any problems with parking downtown. It can get a little tight on Saturdays when the Farmer's Market is going, but even then I can find a spot pretty quickly ... and the Farmer's Market is well worth checking out. I typically go down there with the kids, pick up the vegetables from our CSA (community sustained agriculture; it's where you buy a share of crops from a local farm -- they deliver to the Farmer's Market) then head down to 3rd street to pick up my comics.

Here's a map with the store's location:
