This Week at MKC...

NO consignments will be taken this coming Sunday, 1/17. We are full up! Last two weeks provided us with plenty to enter & display, thank you. Please stay tuned to this blog and our website to find out what (if anything) we're taking next Sunday.

Our toy area is hopping with great things! Walker toys, baby dolls, Thomas, Leap Frog, puzzles (wood and jigsaw), soft baby toys, bead mazes and more. Come by for fun!

Remember: if you drop off toys or equipment without batteries, corroded batteries, non-working batteries, we CANNOT sell them! Please check this BEFORE you drop off. It's time consuming to have to go through items to enter only to have to put these items in donation; we'd rather be working on items we can sell for you! (We simply cannot store items we cannot enter - have you seen how full we are?! We love selling, not storing.) Thanks everyone!

Maternity sweaters are warm and cozy! We're having a sale on maternity shirts to wear under the sweaters - 10% through 1/31! And under the shirt, well, bras are also -10%!

Shirts for babies & kids are also -10%! Jackets for kids are -15%!


On behalf of The Friends of the Marin County Libraries, we are selling raffle tickets for a NEW dollhouse! Everyone at MKC looooves books and the local libraries, and The Book Place bookstore in Novato run by volunteers from FMCL, so please consider buying a ticket (or five, tne?) when you're at the store. There's a picture of the dollhouse, you can leave your stub with us (cash only) and then find out if you won during their big sale this Spring at the SR Civic Center. Good luck!
