More From Where The Toys Are
Last week we took you on a photographic trip through the cool Canonsburg PA antique toy store, Where The Toys Are. This week, as promised, we’re going to bring you even more loverly toy-like eye candy from up North.
You can visit the Where The Toys Are website, but nothing beats going there in person. It’s almost like going to a pop culture museum, only nearly everything is for sale.
