The bunny is hopping down the trail next week!

Happy Wednesday!
Believe it or not, Easter is next weekend!  That means the bunny only has a few shopping days left to pick up all the easter basket 'stuffers'. 

So, because it's come up on us so quickly, I have decided to stay open late next Saturday evening, (March 22nd).  We'll be open 10:00 am-8:00 pm for all the last minute shopping.  AND...if you'll plan on coming in between 6pm-8pm that night, I'll give you 15% off any purchase if you print out this post!!  I'll also set out some snacks and maybe I'll have a gift bag or two to give away! 

It will be lots of fun!  Hope to see you then,

The Toylady's got a new Blog!

Hello! and welcome to the Toylady's first blog posting!  
I'm not too clear on what all I can do on this, or if anyone will be interested, but here we go! It's all about toys and playing, so at least we'll have fun!!  :)

First, a little about us...
My name is Paula Bolte.  My husband (Keith) & I own Imaginations Toy & Furniture Co. in Blacksburg, VA, and Imagination Station in Roanoke, Va.  I've been the Toylady since March, 1997.  Back then, there was no internet shopping, no Target close by, only a small Wal-Mart and not much other competition.  Now, you can find anything you want online, in a catalog or walking the aisles of most big-box stores.  What makes our stores unique?  Our customer service, unique selection of toys and furniture, and all the exciting play things we have out for children (and adults) to play with!  I work really hard to find wonderful, safe toys that kids can play with for many years.  

We also offer fun, fanciful, free gift wrapping, so if you're running late for a party or baby shower, you can run in and out quickly.  You can even call us, give us age and price range and we'll have it wrapped and waiting for you when you get here. 

Easter is less than 2 weeks away, time has changed and I can hear the birds singing outside my office window! Hopefully, Spring is here and we can all go outside and play! I hope you will come for a visit and see all the great new toys we have received.  I'll post a listing soon of some of the new items, and I'll see if I can figure out how to put pictures on this!

Thanks for checking out our blog!  Please let me know if you have any suggestions.
