Chantal McDaniel recently rediscovered Toys Are Used, and writes about that adventure in her latest "Thrift Trick" blog.
"I had almost forgotten about this hidden little gem (after not visiting for almost five years) ... as I pondered over how I would spend my lunch break," the Grand Haven blogger wrote.
"Toys Are Used is both a consignment and resale shop," she continued. "And yes, the prices are a little higher than the average, bottom of the line thrift store (and I do love my cheap prices). However, you can find great deals at Toys Are Used, and here is why the value is great: The toys are cared about here. Not only are they truly appreciated and celebrated (clearly communicated through their loving display and careful stocking), but they are also well-accounted for, clean and taken care of."
That's the shop's owner, Pamela Fritz, in the photo. She's been at it for 23 years.
