39 Years Young and still Rolling! A huge THANK YOU to all of our
customers and employees who made this possible! We are still going strong in 2022, so we will make it easy and make most items 22% off! There are always exceptions, so please see the fine print at the end.

It's summer, when the weather is warmer and we are another year older. Time to celebrate with some great deals. Most everything in the store is 22% off, with a few exceptions.* While it is great to be outdoors, we will have a little fun indoors and stock our sale shelf with assorted goodies. While the whole store is on sale, there will be extra special deals if you are able to stop by. Can't make it in, still many great deals online as well!
KIDS! Ages 4-12

Bring your grown-up along and treat yourself to a FREE Surprise! We have a special shelf near the register where you can pick out something fun!
The fine print - One choice per young modeler, no purchase necessary, selection is limited to the special section, while supplies last, the future hobbyist must be present - and be sure to have fun!
Saturday - Meet the Author
