On August 1, 1988, Woodstock Trading Company was born. The Grateful Dead were still touring and the hippie scene was strong. Only a tie-dyed flag in the window marked the store’s existence. A handful of t-shirts, stickers and psychedelic artwork filled the small second floor space of the office building.
Owner, Gladys “Mom” Glass recalls how it all began, “The psychedelic music scene was, in a sense, a community and that was the spirit we wanted to bring into our hometown. We wanted a safe place for the young people to gather. We wanted to create a Woodstock family of newfound friends.”
