This summer is seeing some major changes at the Depot, not the least of which is that the Cambria Toy Station will become Cambria Toy Works by the end of the summer. While we will continue to stock great science and art kits, construction toys, puzzles, games, and books, we are shifting much of our focus to providing an outlet for locally made products, including our own.

Step 2 in the process starts the first of June as we move our Scale Cabinetmaker workshop space into the track side waiting room and set up a new toy display area in the smaller street side waiting room. Over the past few months we have re-evaluated the space distribution and determined that our studio/production space for miniatures was way too small and we really need the expanded space to tackle larger projects, including building custom houses.

The demand for classes on building miniatures has grown to the point where we need space that will accommodate more tools and more participants than the current space allows.

This also means that we can begin to offer classes to younger children (ages 5-8), in addition to our regular summer classes for children 9 and older. Starting this next fall, we will also be offering art and paper modeling classes to groups, as well as our normal weekend classes.

Which explains step 1 in the process...

Step 1 is the May Sale. We need to drastically whittle down our stock, so we are throwing a great sale through Memorial Day. The shift means we will have less display space and less storage space, so stuff has to go. See our Specials page for more details. While we recognize that the gift season is a fair way off, this is a good time to stock up on future presents, as well as kits and supplies to counter the summer doldrums.
