This shop came about when two friends (who are both artists, business owners, vintage lovers, mothers of boys, and oddly crazy about toys considering they are fully adults) decided to bring together their skills and passions to create a special place where kids and their loved ones could come to shop, learn, create and get inspired in Minneapolis.
Tammy Tanaka Johnson is a well known vintage seller specializing in women's and children's clothing. She has an amazing eye for what's current and cool and also for what is classic. She loves toys that look like food, novelty prints, and kitchy vintage rompers.
Erika Olson Gross is a toy maker, artist and art teacher. Her dolls and animals have been featured in publications around the world but she makes them all from start to finish in her little home studio in Minneapolis. She loves vintage Easter bunnies, googly eyes, and dioramas.
