Moon Marble Company

Our next adventure the weekend of October 28-30 was Moon Marble Company in Bonner Springs.  This was an adventure that Angel had been looking forward to all year.  It was not a disappointment.  The shop was filled with gorgeous marbles--both to play with and collect.  It was also filled with fun, unique toys, many of which were a trip down memory lane.  It is impossible to let words describe Moon Marble Company, so we'll just have to let the pictures speak for themselves.  All I can say is that it is a feast for the eyes.

Maybe I need an inflatable Afro for Halloween  :)

We finally find tossing sticks after all the hard work looking for them.
Too bad we already have some.
One of the best parts was getting to watch them actually make a marble.  It was so amazing to watch the process from rods of glass into an actual marble.  And, it was exciting that this one was purple with gold moons and stars.  Do you think he made it Trego Eagle colors just for us???  :)  As amazing as it was to watch him make the marble--it was just as entertaining to listen to him.  Telling the history of Moon Marble and his own personal history making marbles was fascinating.  It didn't hurt that he was funny and his stories were lots of fun.  We all enjoyed the demonstration, but I think our son thought it was cool the demonstrator had been a boy scout and there was a boy scout troop visiting that day on a Go See It.  It was loads of fun for everyone.
The charge is double for whining on Saturday

The signs around the shop were one of the best parts.
Check out the private handicap bathroom out back.  ;)
