Auntie Penny, Chappaqua's Children's Paradise

CHAPPAQUA-- Penny Auntie, an old fashioned general store started by Barbara Radin Mark and Marian Girardi in 1978, closed in the winter of 2010 after 22 years on King Street in Chappaqua. Penny Auntie then became Auntie Penny, thanks to two long-time employees at Penny Auntie Eve Spence and Linda DeMase.

“I worked here for 10 years before Penny Auntie went out of business,” Spence said. “Linda and I bought the store and made it Auntie Penny’s.”

Spence and DeMase converted what was once a variety store, selling anything from candy to postcards to a toy store. Despite its new merchandise, the duo has kept variety in the former Penny Auntie location.

“We try to cater to all kids interests so we have a wide variety of stuff here,” Spence said. “We have games, puzzles, candy…anything and everything for the young at heart.”

At Auntie Penny you will find candy, puzzles, board games, balls, Frisbees, toys, bracelets, anything and everything kids desire.

Auntie Penny sells themed party favors; small gifts, decorations and balloons for parents throwing that special birthday party for their children.

Auntie Penny also caters to the campers with specialty camp packages which include sleeping bags, stationery, games, blankets, lanyards and even that special gift for your camper.

“Right now is camp season so we have our candy pies which parents can send to their kids at sleep away camps,” Spence said. “Those have been a big hit.”

So whether you’re little one is going to a party or you’re throwing 25 kindergartners a party, Auntie Penny can help you on 11 King Street in Chappaqua, N.Y.
