The holidays are a special time, and it's a time when I think about my grandparents, and what they shared with me as a child. I treasured those times, and I got to relive that today while talking to the amazing Walt Skunda at Stage Coach Toys in Bellbrook.
Either I am getting old, or I am just simply old-fashioned. I love old things in general like black and white movies, old artifacts, old books, and yes-old toys. The holidays are a special time, and it's a time when I think about my grandparents, and what they shared with me as a child. I treasured those times, and I got to relive that today while talking to the amazing Walt Skunda at Stage Coach Toys in Bellbrook.
When I made the call, I felt a bit like I was on the show, American Pickers, but as it turns out, Walt knows more! I had some questions for Walt, to find out just how "vintage" his toys are, and what is happening at his toy store during the holiday season. What you will find on the inside is history, a bit of whimsy and everything from big Christmas gifts to stocking stuffers!
So what is unique about this place? For starters, owner Walt Skunda is committed to vintage toys, and he has plenty of them to prove it. You can find everything vintage including, those old Coca-Cola banks, to comic books and comic book characters. Heck, if you are looking for a big kid's vintage car, well you can find that too!
At this time of year, you can find the following for those who love the iconic characters like:
Does your child have a favorite? If you have been sharing with them what you loved as a child and they have taken up an interest in it, then these toys would make an outstanding gift for your child at Christmas!
Let's not forget the girls! Did you know that Stage Coach Toys now has a Girl's Boutique? You will find anything a little girl loves like:
Surprised? Get down to Stage Coach Toys as soon as you can! Your children will thank you!
Today as I was talking to Walt, he was sharing with me that he dedicated this day to letting charities come in and pick out toys to take back with them. In the heart of the holiday spirit, could a small business owner do anything more giving?
The store is also running a Christmas Sale as they do each year for 25% off select items, so be sure to ask when you come into the shop. It's just Walt and a few of his helpers, so what you will get is a personal shopping experience, and one that is more than unique!
