Not only are these marionettes beautiful, but they’re also American made & well priced! A hand crafted marionette for $39! We have a set of these on display in the store & we’re taking special orders for any we sell out of. We have pinocchio, lancelot on a horse, a siberian tiger & several others.  Display stands are $15.

We also have a new line of unpainted wooden toys from Kentucky. The grasshopper pull toy below ($32) makes a great clicking noise as it’s pulled. From this toy supplier, we have a great selection of mini trucks & cars (for $3 to $6) as well as really unique items like the large river boat boat pull toy shown below.
