    Photos Of Our Small Shop

    I took some Spring photos a few days ago of our little shop here in Indiana. I thought you all might enjoy it. I have a lot of MOTU, but as you see I have a ton of Gi-Joe, lol. Enjoy!

    If you are ever in Indiana, give me a holla!!

    What a fun place to be! I love vintage toystores. The one closest to me is very cluttered and hard to shop, yours looks so clean and organized. Good luck!
    Could we get some Meteorbs, Please???!!!

    Thanks. I need to take some better photos of my MOTU and She-Ra stuff. I do try to keep it organized, but those Gi Joe's are running wild on me!

    Sudelaya,
    your toy store is HEAVEN! You are about a five to six hour drive from me. I'm tempted to stop in in a month or two. I will have to treat your store as I do the casino and leave my plastic at home. lol

    Thanks for the kind words everyone. I wish I could turn it into a real business. It's just a hobby for me right now. I love doing it. I'm working on a complete set of MOTU currently. I have a showcase I've been placing them in. I forgot how much I loved MOTU until recently. I can relate to the situation in New York. I have found one toy store nearest us and it is down in Kentucky on the Outerloop caleld Toy Crazy.

    Ah good ole Kokomo, It's a shame the Beach Boys thought it was a tropical place.

    I've decided where I'd like to rest eternally. After I die, if Mrs. SOB runs into your store and throws ashes all over the place, leave the dust buster alone, it's just me.

    I've been selling them in the shop between $5.00 and $15.00.

    Thanks you guys. I should have everything listed at our website before the end of the summer. I'm just kinda lazy about it, lol. I did find the other day those cool Soakies that use to have Shampoo in them and a really neat Hot Wheels MOTU race track. Now, if I can figure out how to use them at the same time I'd be set.
