  Greg's and the Grave
by Toughluck

Galactic Gregs and Shallow Grave share the same street front (no sidewalks in this part of town) store. Greg's on the right and SG on the left. You can be put off by the neighborhood, which is an old commercial strip that is beginning to improve in its looks. The area is safe and kids hang out at Gregs, which is the Valparaiso home of Role Playing Games. Most afternoons and on weekends, the back of the store is full of young people at their games. If you've heard about Dungeons and Dragons, here you'll find the real thing going on and there are no dungeons and a few dragons. Decent kids having a good time. My generation had the bookshelf games about WWII or other wars. This is the modern version.

What to buy: Gallatic Greg's - collector comics, role playing supplies/books, characters, and collectables.

Shallow Grave - It changes every week as people bring in their old music CD's,DVD's and video games. Some of which is not very old. Several months after the holidays, many 'like new' items show up that were watched or listened to and then sold to SG for resale to you. I've found the latest movies and a few hard to find items. It's always different.

What to pay: Expect to pay the going fare for items in Gallactic Greg's. It is a specialty shop and collector's place. At the Shallow Graves, you'll find everything at 50% or a little more of the shelf price elsewhere. The stock of VHS tapes has been dropped to a dollar or two

Address: 1407 Lincolnway
Directions: About midway between downtown and US 30 along East Lincolnway in the Eastgate area. Look for their sign on the north side. It's what stands out.
