Santa’s Workshop

Today I visited a place that you would swear was Santa’s Workshop. Seriously. This place is somewhere you DO NOT bring children, unless you want to deal with endless tantrums and “I WAAAANT¬†IIIIT” fits.

The Samko & Miko Toy Warehouse, a child’s dream; and a parents dream for that matter. Thousands of toys, games and books for unbelievable prices. It’s held from September 22 – December 23, and I would highly recommend avoiding weekends. The parking is insane (of course), but we lucked out and snagged a spot in front of the entrance. (Thank you to¬†the odd-looking man who knocked on my window and told me to follow him to his car.)

I may end up making another trip there before Christmas, but I think I have managed to cover gifts for all the kiddies in my life. Before going today, I thought I had finished my Christmas shopping for Maxton – and then I got there…He is going to be a lucky little guy this Christmas (and every Christmas for that matter).

There are no shopping carts or baskets – only giant red garbage bags (very durable), so it’s a bit of a pain, especially if you’re pushing a little one in a stroller, and are on your own.

This is definitely one toy sale I will be going to every year.
