This is a teacher's supply store open to the public. Every year they have a great art sale were you can stock up. They have things you actually see in the classroom so if you want to homeschool or just supplement the classroom experience, you can buy classroom type posters. They also have a great selection of workbooks for you to practice with your children and early readers to encourage your little one. They have those big pencils we had when we were elementary schoolers that help kids learn the correct grip. They have great instruments (jingle bells, triangles, etc.) to help encourage your children to continue their love of music that they might get at gymboree or another music school. You could get community helper dress up clothes. It's fun just to browse and think of the possibilities. Generally, the price is lower than you can get elsewhere.
