We will be selling special treats from Friday July 26-Sun July 28 to raise money for Kyoto Animation. For those out of the loop, on July 18, an arsonist set the Kyoto Animation studio on fire injuring killing many people and destroying priceless amounts of anime works. Bring cash, bring your friends and bring some treats; every little bit helps!
If you would like to make baked goods, crafted items or other treats for the fundraiser, we will be accepting bake/ craft sale donations on Friday and Saturday.
This will be happening during our existing scheduled events:
- Friday Play- Fri. from 6-10pm
- Mario Day- Sat. 1-5pm

We are all cleaned up and reopening with a week long sale while we work on getting our busted door replaced, So in essence it’s a Door Buster Sale! Almost everything in the shop will be 10% off.
For those who have missed our recent posts: A car ran into the shop Sunday around 4am while we were at NDK. It was a hit and run that destroyed our door. Luckily a licence plate was found in the debris and the police found the culprit. Its been a lot to clean up, and there has been some damaged merchandise and fixtures, but nothing was stolen. We are happy for all the love and support we’ve received during this traumatic time.
