Neighborhood Toy Store Day – #ASTRA

Did you know that Saturday, November 10th is Neighborhood Toy Store Day? This is an awesome day to take time to enjoy the amazing events happening in your area, promote shopping locally, and checking out the unique selections of quality toys available right in your own neighborhood!

Unfortunately, here were I live in Central Washington, we don’t have any fun events as a part of this celebration. {Which means I need to visit a few of our local shops, and see if we can partner together to do some awesome promotions for next year!} But most cities will have some great events to check out – you can use the search box on YourNeighborhoodToyStore.org to find them.
