March is staying true to form so far - hints of Spring, changeable weather, blustery and wet!
We have just received new figurines that tie in to the movie - Sir Francis Haddock, Red Rackham and a new Tintin - throwing his coat on as he rushes out the door - always the guy of action!
Our Winter Clothing & Accessories Sale
is underway, so if you haven't stopped by yet, come on in and see if some great bargain has your name on it!
We're making way for Spring shipments, which should begin arriving any day now. Sale continues through March 11!
New in on the Tintin front is the Mille Bournes Game! I am so excited about this, and snatched one for myself. I have fond memories of playing this every day after school at my friend's house.
It's a card game the object of which is to complete a trip of 1000 miles. Sounds easy, but mixed in with the mile marker cards (which are illustrated with all sorts of Tintin cars) are Hazard cards - accident, flat tire, etc. If you draw one of these, you have to draw a card to fix the problem and then a green light card.
This game is rated for ages 7 through adult, and can be played by 2 to 8 people. We have copies of the rules in English - the ones in the box are in French.
To celebrate the new figurines we are offering special pricing on all figurines and key rings - buy 2 and get your third at half price! A great time to add to your collection!
Check out our new online store
! After problems encountered during the Holidays (of course!), we decided to revamp it, and think you will find it easier to use. A lot of the most popular items are already there, and we will be adding more all the time. And if there is something we carry that you think would be a good item for us to offer online, please let us know - we are always open to suggestions from our customers!
We Appreciate Your Business!
