Tuesday, September 18th, 2012

Throughout the year Real Good Toys is happy to welcome new customers to our family of store front retailers.  It is important we take a moment to introduce everyone to these great stores and recognize what they have to offer.

Nana’s Necessities

A big Real Good Toys welcome goes out to Nana’s Necessities located at 809 East 4th Street, London, Kentucky, 40741. Their store is in a 110 year old hardware store with its’ original tin ceiling and oak plank floors. The store boasts over 4000 square feet of unique products.  Their hours are 11 to 6:30 Tuesday through Saturday and you can reach them at 606-344-9357.

Shelly, also known as Nana, has been making miniatures with her family for almost 32 years.  She says, “We try to carry all of the hard to find stuff, but if you can’t find something, let us know and we will try our best to find it”! Nana’s Necessities carries one inch, one-half and one-quarter scale dollhouses, miniatures and components.  They have a great selection of patterns to make your own American Girl doll clothing and carry lots of other unique, one-of-a kind items. Shelly and her family make their own soaps and candles and have an extensive inventory of both.  Check out all of their products at their website,
