Battle of Yavin
We stopped by Dallas Vintage Toys the other day. I have to say that I was a bit disappointed. Don't get me wrong, they had tons of cool ol' school toys - mostly Star Wars. I was more put out by their retail space.
I know real estate is expensive, and selling niche toys is probably not the most lucrative business. I just felt that their place isn't the most welcoming shopping environment. First off, the door is locked, so you need to ring a bell to get in. Next, they aren't the most friendliest people. We were barely greeted, never helped and we felt like we were intruding. Finally, the shelves were cluttered and disorganized.
Still, they had an awesome collection of really cool toys. Some of which I remember from my childhood. Perhaps, I'll just keep my shopping limited to their website.
