This is the most crammed, uncomfortable, confusing shop ever. I swear the guy who works there just sits behind the counter. I didn't know if he was alive or not until I tried to touch his eyeball to see if he was real or not. That's about the only way you'll get him to talk. He's probably 50 or so.

How to explain? First, once you enter, you'll realize that you won't be able to breath for the next fifteen minutes. Not because it stinks, but because there are stacks of toys all over the place. They literally stackup at least 4 feet off of the tables. I assume they're tables but they might just be more toys-I honestly don't know. If you have a healthy gut-this is not the store for you.

Third we have the comics section, if you can make it to them. While they make an honest effort to organize them, they tend to slide down to one side and/or flip over the barrier so the book folds in half. Pretty good selection though I must say.

I really don't know what this guy is doing. I wish him well, but the store really honestly looks like a hurricane hit it. Or a tornado. Or a hurricane, and then a tornado right afterwards. It's insane. Oddly enough, he has a nice selection of toys and the prices are a bit high, but workable.

Magic The Gathering: He has tons of boxes and packs-he even has urza's and all sorts of goodies. He's just asking guide and a half/quarter for everything. Good luck there.

I'm conflicted, as a comic guy you have to be pretty lenient to comic shops and the guys who run them. I'm the first one to say running a shop is not easy, but this store needs an overhaul-just clear it out a bit so people can get around without knocking over the line of dominoes you call a shop.

And how about greeting someone when they walk in the door? It doesn't happen here, I think because he can't see you over all of the stuff.

PROS: hidden gold?
CONS: crammed, layout,unabomber works there
