Summer Dollhouse Clearance Sale at Real Good Toys Warehouse

Wednesday, July 18th, 2012

Happy Customers ready for bargain hunting

 

Getting great deals

Our Sizzlin’ Summer Warehouse Clearance Sale and Demo Day at Real Good Toys was a great success!! It was a beautiful Saturday in June, so we threw open the warehouse doors to find lots and lots of customers waiting at the door to come in.  People traveled from all over New England and some attended the sale as part of their vacation. There were amazing deals on old, unique and some one-of-kind dollhouse kits and components. People filled the aisles, hunted through boxes and found that special item that they needed for their projects.

The technique demonstrations given by Gary, our Production Manager, were a huge hit!  They were very well attended and participants listened intently, taking notes and asking questions.  When the demos were over, everyone scurried back to the sale area to purchase supplies that were used in the demonstrations. 

 All in all, everyone that attended our first summer sale left satisfied they got the best bargains, and many were excited about attending our 2nd Annual Fall Foliage sale in October. You weren’t able to make the summer sale?  Start making plans to visit us in October!!  No rest for the RGT team.  Time to start digging for more treasures to offer in the fall!!

Real Good Toys 2nd Annual Build-Along Project Finished Dollhouse Photos

Tuesday, July 3rd, 2012

Jodi & Jen hosted the Real Good Toys 2nd Annual Build-Along Project on Facebook again this year and it was a huge success.  The project featured the Puzzle Dollhouse kit, which consisted of 70+ pieces of various size rectangles and triangles.  Each participant ordered their Puzzle Dollhouse kit and then had to “think outside the blocks” to create their own, one-of-a-kind miniature dollhouse or building.  At first, I think many people were puzzled by the concept and believe it or not, it’s harder than you think to create the walls, roofs and room dividers yourself.  Especially when you are used to opening a Real Good Toys dollhouse kit and everything is pre-cut for you!  Once you started playing with your puzzle pieces, it really sparked our imaginations and that of everybody who shared the fun with us.  We had such creativity in our midst – we are proud to call all our Build-Along participants our friends.  It’s such a wonderful experience to be able to share our ideas and problems with everybody and get instant feedback on what may work, or not.  Each year, I know I learn something new, that inevitably helps me with my next project.  A heartfelt THANK YOU to everybody who participated in the 2012 Real Good Toys 2nd Annual Build-Along Project featuring the Puzzle Dollhouse kit.  Be sure to check out all the Build-Along Photos!

We’re already thinking about next year’s project!  We think it might simply be a dollhouse shell – with pre-cut parts.  Put your thinking caps on and stay tuned for more information!
