Need Toys For Your Children? Prefer to Shop Small? You Have Options in Sebastopol, CA

August 18, 2016

These days, we are frequently encouraged to shop small. From tangible benefits like providing jobs for people in your community to intangible benefits like the charm which locally owned shops bring to a town, there are many reasons to shop at locally owned businesses. When it comes to shopping for our children, we want the best for them, so choosing a locally owned toy store seems like a natural choice. Sure, you might pay a little more than you would at a big box store, but the quality of the toys combined with the support you give your community makes it well worth it.

If you live in Sebastopol, CA and want to start to start supporting your local toy stores, there are several great options to choose from. One to consider is The Toyworks, located on 6940 Sebastopol Ave. Established in 1977, The Toyworks features over 15,000 different items, like toys, games, puzzles, and crafts, and they offer additional services like free gift wrapping.
