I have been going to Peddlers Village since I was a little girl. One of my most treasured memories was spending the day there with my grandparents. I couldn't wait to take my daughter to The Village Toy Store and tell her I went there with her great -grandparents. I packed her up and drove 45 minutes to Lahaska, we had lunch and then we went to her favorite place The Giggleberry Fair. I said, " ok, let's go get a new toy!" As soon as we entered the store the woman behind the counter looked at me in a strange way. I ignored her but could feel her eyes the whole time. My daughter is only 17 months and she is very well-behaved. She picked up a ball and walked off with it. I had trouble following her because the store is not set up for strollers. She put the ball down and went for the trains. Not one minute later did the woman walk up and say "Are you buying this?" while she pointed at the ball. I smiled and said, " I am not sure yet." She huffed and said, " well someone will trip over it." and she put it back. I thought to myself, " ok I will have to watch every move my daughter makes because this woman has it out for us." We continued over to the stuffed animals. We were repeating the names of each one. My daughter picked up an eagle and was rubbing her nose on his beak and laughing. She walked off quickly and I had a hard time keeping up again because of the way the store is set up. She ran ahead and I quickly came up behind to find the same woman watching my daughter. She acted like she was just passing. As she passed my daughter put the beak in her mouth. I corrected her immediately. The woman marched right over to me and said, " YOU WILL BE BUYING THAT TOY NOW! I JUST CAN'T SELL IT TO ANYONE ELSE AFTER SHE HAS HAD IT IN HER MOUTH!" She was so rude and embarrassed us intentionally. If she would have approached me quietly and respectfully I would have agreed. She was looking for something from the minute we walked in. I quickly reacted and said, " She is baby for god sake and if I saw it coming I would have stopped her but her back was turned to me. I guess you don't want children in your store because children put things in their mouths and they touch things. This is a toy store right?! You have been following us since the second I walked in here." Which she denied but it was NOT my imagination. I asked her who the owner was. She said she was but I doubted it for some reason. She directed me to the counter to pay for the toy. I put the eagle back where he came from and walked out. The moral of the story is "babies" are not welcome in The Village Toy Store and neither are strollers. I guess the toys are for adults and old crotchety women. I must make it very clear that if I was approached in a normal manner over the issue I would have agreed immediately. I am not trying to hurt her business but I will say that at 65, you should really learn how to speak to people properly.
