15 years ago one of Bucktown's original children's stores, The Red Balloon opened to the public. Since then, they've opened another storefront outgrown their britches and are ready for the next big thing. Starting today for three days, they're closed in order to relocate to the now vacant and remodeled Paper and Print. Owner, Jen Pope decided on the new street corner space for it's enormous windows and spacious layout.
