Walked to this little treasure located on the main street across from the ferry line. Lots of old toys to look at, but so small that I kept bumping into people. Tons of small, cheap toys for the kids to purchase, Art gallery out back, also room with jewelry for sale.

Whether you are 8 or 80, this is a fun place to visit. Loaded with the kind of toys I used to get in jars or bins at the 5&10 store in the 1960's. The collection of antique toys on the walls and ceiling are really cool. Not always open, but worth it when it is.

The shop owner was so kind to a group of children who spent so much time browsing with so little purchasing. The store is small but we spent nearly an hour just gazing at all the memorabilia.

More than a toy museum! Art gallery in the back with the owner's fabulous paintings of the island's rocks, flowers, trees, beaches, dunes, apple orchards... both originals and prints, both very affordable for great art. The main store contains children's books, original cards, island postcards, and lots of fun little things for kids and adults alike (stones, fossils, little plastic frogs and army guys), crayons, paints, and pastels, tatoos, pieces of candy, filling up wooden bins all around the store. See what fun a five year old can have spending a dollar there. Give yourself time to look at the jewelry and other beautiful items. Truly fun for everyone. The owner is a creative genius. And oh yes, all this within a shrine to antique toys, metal fire trucks, old Raggedy Anns....! You'll want to visit again and again.

Drove by it 3 times before finding it. Store is down a cowpath through untrimmed trees. Cluttered, unorganized. Had a few neat older toys. Advertised as the last nickel store in the country- not sure I'd pay a nickel for erasor tops or plastic coins. The political leanings of the owner were apparent.
