The Province of Ontario have issued a “Stay At Home” order. Within the restrictions of this order, non-essential businesses (like us), are allowed to do curb side pick ups. While we do have plenty of our items listed on our web site, there is still very much that is not. So if you’re looking for any item, and you don’t see it online, please message us via social media, or email and we’ll see what we can do for you. Don’t forget that Gift Cards are also available online. We will NOT be at the store during the entire hours of operation posted on our site. There’s simply no point to do so since we can’t have our doors open to the public. Arrangements can be made for pick up orders however. Locally, if you don’t want to visit the store to pick up items, we do offer a delivery service as well. as always, shipping is also available anywhere across the country. Hopefully this doesn’t last too long...Read More
Category Newest Update
We were at the store pretty late last night wrapping up sorting collections and getting ready to re-open TODAY. So come on by between 10-2pm if you’d like to see what’s new in the store. We’ve also updated our hours for the rest of the week, so don’t forget to check those out at well.
I wish I had more to update on, but you’ll just have to visit the store to see what else is new!Read More
The Provincial government has given tomorrow (Tuesday, February 16th) as an official date that non-essential retail (like us) can re-open. The only problem with this is that it’s a week sooner than we were all originally told to expect. So we’re not ready to be open this week. We started re-arranging the store layout, brought in a new showcase, and well, the store looks like a bomb has gone off in it since we’ve been sorting boxes of collections from our backroom all this time.
We’re HOPING to be open this Saturday, February 20th, but honestly don’t see us re-opening our doors to the public until Wednesday, February 24th. If sooner, we’ll update this posting ASAP.
We’d also like to thank all of you for shopping via our website during this newest lockdown. Your continued support of our shop is greatly appreciated. We won’t ever forget those that helped us out during this time. Thank you!Read More
Our city has been shut down less than a week before Christmas. So first, I’d like to thank our inept government for screwing all of this up. Well done. Also a sarcastic thank you to the idiots that STILL don’t take this all serious.
Our site remains open for online ordering. We can ship your order, personally deliver it, or you can do a curbside pick up at our store location on Ottawa Street North in Hamilton, Ontario. Should you require anything from inside the store that’s not listed online (loose figures, games, etc), please send us an email, or a message via our social media pages as that stuff won’t be added online.
I’d also like to thank everyone for the continued support of not just our store, but small businesses everywhere. Trust me when I say it’s appreciated far more than you know.Read More

When we first launched our new online store in April, we were limiting orders to Curbside pick up due to the shut down, and some local delivery. Then, we added Ontario shipping via Shipper Bee. Next, across Canada via Canada Post. Now, with the winter months here, and Hamilton’s current “Red Rating”, we’re offering the option to have your online orders delivered. Delivery Fee is based on where you live in the city. If the Delivery Option doesn’t show up for you, then you’re either in Dundas, Waterdown, or Ancaster – in which case, we’d recommend Shipper Bee if you don’t want to pick up your items at the store. COVID19 isn’t magically vanishing “like a miracle” anytime soon, so we want to make sure that you’re able to get gifts for your loved ones this holiday season, easier than ever with us.
Speaking of our website. We’ve had some hiccups along the way, and listened to your suggestions...Read More
Firstly, thank you! We’ve won a Diamond rating Readers’ Choice Award for our store. Generally these are reserved for places like Toys R Us, or other chain stores… but this year, it’s all ours!
Onto the update! There’s a few changes to the website. For starters, we’re no longer taking appointments. We may again at another time, but for now we’re just limiting store access to 4 people as per government restrictions. (1 person for every 42 sqft of empty floor space). We’ve also started shipping with Canada Post across Canada. However, if the cheaper “Priority Shipping” option is available upon checkout, please use that. It’s cheaper for you anyway.
Within the store, our unique hours are still the same for the time being. We purchase collections both when we’re open, and closed – so if a specific day works better for you, drop us a line. Speaking of which, we’re still not handling cash in the store – especially with another local collectors shop having a covid scare in the last few weeks...Read More
This is something I’ve wanted to do for years when our website was originally up. I’m SUPER stoked that the system we’re using is now allowing this feature.
When you click on an item, it’ll now show you how many points, and how much those points are worth on a future visit.
So here’s the catch… The points are not available to be redeemed on Gift Cards, or Supplies. You can earn the points by purchasing those items, you just can’t redeem them on those two sections.
Unfortunately this isn’t retro-active, so it starts today, on every purchase made going forward.
Don’t forget! We now deliver to various locations around Ontario! (More to come!).
Any questions, please message us!
Our online store is only open on weekends right now. It opens at 4pm every Saturday, and remains open until Tuesday noon. Since we’ve had people inquiring as to why, I thought I’d make a quick post to explain how Covid-19 has changed our business, but for the better.
Pre-Covid, we’d be behind on collections that come in, and we’d stick them in the backroom, or the basement, and forget about them. When Covid-19 showed up, and our city was in shutdown, that allowed us PLENTY of time to go through it all… and we “found” a ton of stuff we had forgotten we had!
So now, our store is only open Thursday, Friday, and Saturday for in store sales, and Online from Saturday night to Tuesday noon. Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday are reserved for sorting collections, adding items to the site, processing website orders, and general clean up of the shop. Sunday we generally purchase collections, and take the rest of the day off.
So there you have it...Read More
