Before going here I never realized the beauty of a marble. Artists demonstrate how to make a marble. it is a form of glass making. It always fascinates me how different colors, shapes and objects can be made into the glass - in this case a marble.

There are many artists with marble and other custom glass figures for sale. This is art fair and museum quality in many cases.

They also have an excellent collection of classic games and toys for sale for kids of all ages. And if you are missing marbles or dice from your other games, they have a huge selection of replacements at very reasonable prices.

Recommend stopping in if you are in the area.

The initial room that you walk into makes you think you walked into a candy store. The wall is lined with candy bins filled with the different sizes, colors and textures of marbles. You are able to select a tube and fill with what interests you. The marbles for sale near the front of the store are more economical, the marbles for sale in the back are for the collector. Traveling down a small corridor leads you to the back room...very excited about this room! It seems as though every game you could think of from your childhood is there. We spent quite awhile going around and reminiscing. We had looked at the website and knew when the marble making demo was and were called into a further back room. You don't have to worry about sitting in the front row, they had a camera and large tv set up so that you could see the detailed work he was doing without pushing others out of the way. It was a very enjoyable trip....as my husband just said, "it was right good!" (He is English)

Great place to spend a Saturday morning or afternoon! The little kids always get a kick out of seeing the marble making demonstrations and it will certainly bring back memories for Grandpa.

The store has a great assortment of nostalgic games and toys and the folks that own/run it are very friendly and helpful.

This is a unique place. The marble demonstrations are interesting. They have some new and retro games. It is worth the trip and easy to find.
