From the May 2011 edition of the Glover Park Gazette:

Sullivan’s Toys & Art Supplies (3412 Wisconsin Ave.) has found a new home—at least for the next few years. According to owner Tam Sullivan, the beloved toy shop will move to 4200 Wisconsin Ave. (at Van Ness St.) in June.

Sullivan’s popular shop will be forced to move next year—at least temporarily—due to redevelopment of its current location. Though the owner is keeping all his options open, he is actively looking at Glover Park storefronts and says he has a sentimental attachment to the neighborhood, where he and his brother played softball as children.
