The store is designed to bring a smile to your face which everyone needs now a days. Customers say it is like going back in time. As you find something to spark a great memory as a child. It was kind of a goal to do that very thing to people. It features a museum of 750 Lunchboxes plus one of the LARGEST Generic Vinyl Cases COLLECTION in USA, shelves filled with lunch boxes, bobby soxer ponytail accessories, cards, action figures, 8 track tapes, carnival items, front strike match books, Marx pinball machine games or toys, Year Books, Star Wars, Star Trek, Indiana Jones, Starting Line-Up sports, MIB collectibles and anything whimsical that we come across. Email us or call us if you want a private tour experience. We are on bus routes, across the street from a marina on Clear Lake, and right on highway 20 East between Highway 101 and I-5 North.

First off, I am sorry for any inconvenience that occurred from my not being open on the day you came by my museum. Due to a medical condition, I can only be open a minimal amount of time. If you came by on the weekend...More
