Black Friday Weekend Event!

While everyone was enjoying Halloween, we have been scurrying around, gleefully preparing for our Black Friday weekend event.  If you joined us last year, you'll remember the fun and special items we brought out for the occasion.  This year will be no different... We have some great things planned! You all know I stink at keeping secrets.  That's why we post new releases as soon as we hear about them!  I've been keeping our Black Friday secret for weeks now, and I can't keep it any longer...  This year's special items are surprise packs!

Fun at the schooling show!

Fun at the schooling show!
The part I am so excited about with these schooling shows is that everyone who participates can also judge each class!  Exhibitors are given judging sheets and shown how to fill them out properly for results to be recorded by the show host afterward.  Experienced judges mingle with first-timers to provide their thoughts on what is important to them, helping train the eyes of those who are new to judging.  They are also encouraged to bring along ribbons or awards for each placing, and to be creative with them, as long as they adhere to the standard color scheme so everyone knows the order they were placed.  We saw some awesome ideas for simple placings:  Everything from printed paper ribbons to foam shapes to seashells... even wrapped chocolates and poker chips!

It's Earth Day 2018 (and we sell plastic models. How does that work?)

It's Earth Day 2018 (and we sell plastic models.  How does that work?)
It sounds hypocritical to talk about Earth Day when our business centers around selling plastic models... Even more so since this year's Earth Day theme is "End Plastic Pollution."  However, most of the models we sell will remain "in use" (in other words, in collections) for decades...
